Modular Pathway



Our modular programme is designed for qualified dietitians to allow them to build on their existing knowledge of paediatric nutrition and dietetics. The programme provides a progressive path through paediatric training with the modular format allowing flexibility for dietitians who have differing levels of experience. The modules are of a very practical nature and learning is achieved through a mix of lectures, workshops, case studies, problem solving and informal discussion groups.

Each module is endorsed by the BDA for 80 learning hours, upon completion of pre-course work and attendance at a 4-day taught module. The modules are also incorporated into the MSc Advanced Professional Practice (Paediatric Dietetics) course, in partnership with the University of Plymouth. Each module has an award of 20 MSc credits attached, upon completion of pre- coursework, attendance at the 4-day taught module and post-course assignment.

























MSc Advanced Professional Practice (Paediatric Dietetics)

The MSc programme can be completed via either a full time or part time route. The full MSc (180 Credits) is awarded on successful completion of 3 Core Modules (at University of Plymouth), 3 Pathway (BDA) Modules and 1 Optional Module. You may choose to step off the programme at either PG Cert or PG Dip level. For further information, please refer to the course brochure above.
