This programme will give you the opportunity to develop critical thinking, problem solving and reflective practice skills at one of the University's most successful schools.
Continuing your professional development is not only a requirement for ongoing registration with the Health Professions Council but is increasingly recognised as important by government, professional bodies and the public sector. The University of Nottingham has been a recognised provider of the British Dietetic Association's (BDA) Masters in Advanced Dietetic Practice programme since 2008. This postgraduate qualification has been designed to meet the BDA's requirements of both work-based learning and research skills.
Practitioners who aspire to become increasingly competent professionals must develop the ability to evaluate current practice critically, both from the wider professional picture and their individual point of view.
This programme (also available as PGDip, PGCert or as individual modules) offers a sound foundation for professional development on which to build your future success. It has been designed to suit your personal and professional situation, whether that is a single module, a postgraduate certificate, diploma or the complete masters programme.
Please note: this is not a postgraduate pre-registration course for individuals with a first degree now wanting to train as a dietitian, but rather a postgraduate post-registration programme suitable as continuing professional development for dietitians and other healthcare professionals.
- This programme has been specially developed by professionals in the Division of Nutritional Sciences, in the School of Biosciences, one of the University's most successful schools based at the Sutton Bonington Campus.
- Our dynamic teaching team offers the opportunity to learn under the guidance of expert practitioners, educators and researchers. You will have the opportunity to gain a thorough knowledge of the principles of professional development, develop skills of critical thinking, problem solving and reflective practice, and develop practical skills in relation to accepted theories.
