Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This is the subject you need to study if you want to become a dietitian – an important job in the country’s healthcare sector, and the single most common job for nutrition graduates. The population is becoming more aware of how important a good diet can be for wellbeing, and many people have special dietary needs, from individuals with food allergies to others with serious illnesses who need carefully-planned diets. So that's where graduates in nutrition come in – and we're likely to need more in the future.
