BSc (Hons) Integrated Nutrition & Dietetics

3 years, full-time

Intended start date: September 2019


This course will be a 3-year full-time degree programme combining all nutrition and dietetics approaches to nutritional intervention for the management of disease and ill health into one programme. This unique and exciting course will allow graduates to directly alter and shape the future of the nutrition profession.

Students will learn the two disciplines in parallel and will extensively and critically evaluate the benefits, shortcomings, evidence base and practical implications of all available nutritional approaches to support patients and service users in meeting their health goals. Students will be taught by some of the industry’s leading nutrition professionals.

The UCO will be the only dietetics education provider to have their own, on-site nutrition and dietetics clinic. As clinical practice will underpin this degree, students will have access to a diverse and extensive range of patients and service users at the UCO’s purpose-built nutrition clinic and through our multiple community and clinical partnerships.

Upon graduation, students will be able to register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Dietitian, subject to successful course approval. 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.

Key features:

  • Study progressive and integrated Nutrition & Dietetics
  • Gain a deep, scientific & evidence-based approach to human health and nutrition
  • Gain extensive clinical experience via weekly contact with patients, starting in Term 1
  • Enrol onto the only dietetics course in the UK with its own, on-site nutrition and dietetics clinic
