International Student Membership

Join our expanding Student community!

Are you a dietetic student enrolled at a Higher Education Institution outside the UK which is officially linked to one of our 25 BDA accredited, HCPC approved universities in the UK? If so, we would be happy to welcome you as an International Student member!


Numerous BDA-accredited Higher Education Institutions have affiliations with international dietetic and nutrition courses, enabling many students across the world to become eligible for support from the BDA as a result. International student membership works in the same way as our main Student member category, with the exception that the named Tutor at the UK-affiliated University must verify eligibility of the student applications from their linked institution.

Take a look at our lists of BDA-accredited international courses below to find out whether your institution is listed:
