The Nutrition and Dietetics programme offers a four-year daytime course. During the first year students are prepared for the profession, get to know themselves and the group. After this first year, students are deepening and broadening their knowledge on a broad range of topics related to the broad profession of a dietitian. Besides that also (dietetic) skills and project work is part of the programme. Future dietitians can chose from four majors: clinical, public health nutrition, industry or society. Options for studying abroad can be incorporated in the individual student's programme.

You can find more information on our Dutch web page, since the study programme is Dutch taught.

Theme-based curriculum​

The Nutrition and Dietetics programme is based on a number of current issues and themes closely connected to practice. Each year four themes are introduced, e.g. nutrition and lifestyle, healthy ageing, dietetic care process, body weight, gastrointestinal tract. Over the course of 8 weeks the corresponding knowledge, skills and application in projects is taught. During these projects, you and your fellow-students will be working closely together on concrete assignments.

Competences

In order to align the programme with practice in the broad field of dietetics, the development of a set of generic competences, such as communication and collaboration runs through the programme. Furthermore, as a graduated dietitian you are able to:

  • put together nutritional guidance and design medical diets, based on information (from medical files or referral by the doctor or GP or from the assessment of the client).

  • supervise and motivate patients/ clients with regard to changing their nutritional patterns.

  • design interventions to encourage people to start to life a healthier life.

  • recommend about the composition safety and availability of food products and concepts.
