University College of Osteopathy "Integrated Nutrition and Dietetics"21 August 2019
The BDA is aware of University College of Osteopathy’s proposal to launch a BSc (Hons) in Integrated Nutrition and Dietetics. At the moment, the course is awaiting full approval from the HCPC, which will be required if students are to be eligible to register as dietitians upon graduation.
We are currently unaware of the course content or structure but all accredited courses must demonstrate the ability to produce competent healthcare professionals: which all courses accredited against the BDA dietetic curriculum do.
We welcome innovation in the way that dietetic education is provided and look forward to working with UCO if they are able to gain approval from the HCPC.
Details of all BDA accredited dietetic training coursescan be found on our training pages.
