BDA Student Events

Our virtual student e-visits are for first year UG and PG students at BDA accredited universities to attend free of charge to hear about what the BDA does for dietetics, as well as what we offer students specifically. You will also learn about the variety of career paths available to you following your degree from our selection of guest speakers working across the profession.  There is also a second part of the series which will be delivered as a traditional webinar this is focused on evidence-based practice and is open to all dietetic students.

The e-visits enable us to introduce you to the BDA student membership community and provide guidance on how you can get involved in your professional body, both by joining as a student member (free to first years and less than £40 per year thereafter), and by taking advantage of all the opportunities and benefits available to you. There will also be a guest talk from a dietitian about their career path.

We have arranged e-visits with all Universities plus some goodies have also been sent. Find out more from your lecturers. The e-visits are only for first year UG and PG students.

We will also be hosting a second part focused on evidence-based practice, we invite all student groups to join us on one of the below dates for a free webinar. We encourage all students to attend one of these sessions.

As the future of our dietetic workforce, it is important you are able to access and interpret the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease and translate this into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.

The BDA invites all dietetic students to attend our free webinar, where students studying across the UK can find out more about how the BDA supports you to be evidence-based dietitians. We will be providing a live demonstration of the PEN System, available free to BDA members. We’ll also be sharing tips to support you during your time at university, and on placement.

During the hour you will find out more about what resources are available to BDA members to support students to access and interpret the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease and translate research into practical guidance.
