Why study nutrition and dietetics at Cardiff Metropolitan University?
Be professional recognised – we offer the only courses in Wales to be accredited by the British Dietetic Association to train NHS Dietitians and by the Association for Nutrition to train Nutritionists.
Develop applied skills – you’ll be taught by a committed team of Registered Dietitians, Registered Nutritionists and Sports Nutritionists who explore real-life examples from practice at every opportunity. We are experienced in enabling students to develop excellent communication skills; starting with micro-skills, case studies and direct observation, then building up to role play, use of video feedback and finally supervised practice with the general public.
You’ll develop practical skills of devising and producing meal plans in our consumer kitchen, dietary assessment in our clinical simulation suite and taking anthropometric measures in our exercise physiology laboratory.
Focus on employability – right from week one you’ll be meeting Dietitians and Nutritionists in practice, hearing about their career journey and thinking about your own future. You’ll first meet with your personal tutor in freshers week; who will mentor you throughout your degree to enable you to develop the skills you’ll need for your preferred career pathway.
Just before you graduate, all students present their final year dissertation research findings to an audience of Registered Dietitians and Nutritionists; a great opportunity to participate in a professional conference and network with future employers.
