About

Find out more information about Nutrition & Dietetics

Talk about jobs that become more popular as time went by… Nutrition & Dietetics, a subdiscipline of Medicine, is the science that focuses on all the aspects of food and what its effect is on our bodies. Master’s students in Nutrition & Dietetics are committed to understanding why and how certain eating and nutritional habits are affecting us, and how we can improve our health. Yes, they’re the ones who are judging you for eating that cupcake this morning (I’m looking at you, Karen!).

Historically, this field developed because, as cultures evolved, we stopped eating tree bark and grass. As a result, our metabolisms had to start processing different foods and nutrients, each of them causing different reactions in the human body. Basically, you can see Nutrition & Dietetics as a combination of Medicine and Chemistry, where your sole purpose will be to help people with food. Pretty cool, considering eating is one of the best parts of being alive.

Nutrition & Dietetics applies to a variety of sciences; but the two most popular specialisations are:

• Weight Control
• Chronic Illnesses

With your degree, you will easily find jobs in diverse fields and organisations, like:

• Private sector or public hospitals
• Nursing care facilities
• Advertising or Marketing
• Food manufacturing
