    Really interested in the course, wanted to know if others were? What are you currently studying and where are you going to apply? I heard it's a pretty female dominated course, any other lads doing it?

    Hi I am! Currently studying Biology, Physics, Maths and Religious Studies. Unfortunately as I don't do Chemistry I'm pretty limited so I'm going to apply to Coventry, Chester and Surrey for Dietetics and Nottingham and Leeds for Nutrition. Is anybody going on the Dietetics taster day at Guy's Hospital in May?

    Brilliant Do you know what sort of things we'll be doing? The only people that know what it is at my school is because I've mentioned it to them. I'd rather they didn't know what it was than be like my dad who keeps calling it 'Dionutetics'

    I copied this off the London Met website about it:
    Objectives After attending the session the audience will:
    -Know the role of a dietitian and possible career opportunities.
    -Gain insight into specialist dietetics in both the acute and primary care settings.
    -Understand the relationship between dietetics and the specialist dietary products industry.
    -Gain insight into the patients perspective of healthcare and/or dietetics.
    -Be aware of the role of the British Dietetic Association.
    -Understand the challenges and experiences of a newly qualified dietitian.

    That sucks I'm so bad at explaining it in ways people will understand so nobody really knows much

    Went to this career event about two weeks ago (however at a different location) - was really useful!

    Definitely ask lots of questions, they love that!

    Also if you're applying to Kings/London Met be careful to make a good impression as someone who will be conducting the interviews will most probably be there

    Yeah, it was good. I was surprised that I was like one of the youngest there (I'm 17), but I found it really interesting. It would have been nice if it was a little bit longer so they could fit everything in, but it was useful, especially the stuff about the first year being a dietitian when applying for jobs. Did you?

    Yeah, I was surprised too. Most of the people there already had a degree and wanted to specialise. Thought it's be mostly AS and A2 students. Most of the stuff they said was stuff you can easily find if you research and I thought it would be a bit more interactive and give a bit more insight into it but it was good to learn about placements and interviews etc. I enjoyed it though

    Yeah, I hoped it would be. I also thought the PhD students were interesting, but I didn't realise it would just be lecture type things. I also hoped they might go into a bit more about the day-to-day type things they do, rather than generalising it. Are you going to the King's open day?

    No I'm not as I can't actually get in without Chemistry so there's no point

    Oooh, which ones are you going for? I'm taking chemistry, but it's so hard and I really don't like it, and I probably won't get the grades they want in it. :L

    Surrey, Chester and Coventry. Ulster also offers it without chemistry but I don't fancy going to Northern Ireland. That was my dilemma, I despise Chemistry unless it's related to something I'm interested in so I would have hated it and not got a good grade.

    I'm really interested in the course as well but I don't know much about it and what grades are required in order to do this course. Btw what is the difference between dietitian and nutrition?
