The BSc (Hons) Integrated Nutrition & Dietetics undergraduate degree programme at the University College of Osteopathy is a new and progressive course that will provide you with a comprehensive and integrative approach to practice by combining the best from all branches of the dietetic and nutrition professions. The course will present you with evidence-based nutrition science and clinical practice frameworks, advanced patient-care skills and methods, and a critical approach to the latest dietetic and nutritional interventions. A detailed and applied understanding of the biosciences will provide you with a robust scientific foundation on which extensive research and evidence-based theories and practice will be built.

Across your three years of study, you will gain a deep, systems-based understanding of the complexities of the human body in health and disease, and the role of nutrition and dietetics in the promotion of optimal health and modifying the path and progression of acute and chronic illness. Each year the course will consolidate and expand on the knowledge and research skills gained, giving you the confidence and capabilities to make a real difference in a complex healthcare landscape.

From year one, you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge through clinical skills based practical sessions, and within the supervised student clinic. You will spend a minimum of 1,000 hours in direct contact with service users at both the UCO Clinic and our off-site clinical community partnership placements and external placements. Here you will develop skills as a service user-centred nutrition practitioner. In addition to the extensive scientific training and comprehensive clinical methods that form the basis of this degree course, you will work alongside a range of other healthcare professionals during community, hospital and private practice-based placements. You will also train in coaching and communication skills, facilitating your development as a confident and highly adaptable healthcare professional.

Upon graduation you will be able to apply to register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Dietitian, subject to HCPC approval of the course. The HCPC recognises graduates as meeting the highest standards of education and research, as well as having the experience and skills required to apply their knowledge safely and effectively in a clinical setting.
