International Membership

Those who have undertaken recognised training in nutrition and dietetics overseas can join the British Dietetic Association (BDA) as an International member. BDA International membership encourages sharing of nutrition and dietetic practice across the world.

To be eligible for International membership you should:

  • have undertaken recognised education and training in nutrition and dietetics overseas
  • not currently registered in the UK and are not practising in the UK
  • be a full member of a dietetic association recognised by ICDA or EFAD or a member of a dietetic association which has similar aims to the BDA.

N.B. UK-trained dietitians working overseas and a full member of the association of that country can retain BDA full membership or become an international member.

If you are an International Member and obtain HCPC registration to work in the UK, you must transfer to the Full Member category.
