Welcome distinguished future Dietitians!
This is the thread where you can discuss the progress of the application process, and ask any questions regarding application to Dietetics programmes, or the programme content.
Below is some potentially useful information that may help you
Universities offering programmes with dietetic registration eligibility are displayed in yellow, ones not yellow offer food science/nutrition courses but do not offer a course leading to eligibility for registration as a dietitian.
Below is the latest table for food science departments across the country. The University of Surrey is currently seen as the best in the UK, and quite possibly the World. Typical entry requirements displayed as AAB, but I have heard of many offers at AAA. Similar to the requirements of the runner ups: KCL, Nottingham and Coventry.
More mediocre Universities that offer the course include Hertfordshire, Plymouth, and London Metropolitan.

What is a Dietitian?
A dietitian is an expert in dietetics; that is, human nutrition and the regulation of diet. A dietitian alters their patient's nutrition based upon their medical condition and individual needs. Dietitians are the only healthcare professionals licensed to assess, diagnose, and treat nutritional problems. For example, safely regulating the diet of a patient with Crohn's disease is out of physician's scope of expertise, thus a dietitian must be called to permit any changes based upon their knowledge of nutritional biochemistry. Dietitians work in a variety of settings from clinical to community.
