Hello! I have got the conditional offer from Sheffield Hallam. Does a large proportion of the student successfully graduate? Does anyone know about the drop out or anything about the placement? Thanks!!!

You should be asking yourself ‘Do I want to study X at Y?’

Nobody else can answer but you

Hi dau928

This is the response from the course leader:

This is a new two year MSc Dietetics pre-registration course which started in January 2019 (7 months in). The first students will be due to graduate in January 2021. The course is approved by the HCPC and accredited by the British Dietetic Association. There are 4 placements (3 in the NHS and one in an Extended scope setting). Three placements are part-time and take place alongside your studies and one placement is full-time. More information is available on the website: https://www.shu.ac.uk/courses/health...full-time/2019

Thanks
Helen

Does anyone know if the Jan 2020 intake is full? I have my interview soon but I know other uni's have interviewed for 2021 intakes from those who have applied for 2020. Is the interview process just an individual interview or is there a group aspect? Finally, is there any possibility of doing the interview over Skype as I am from Ireland? Any info would be great!!

Hi a1manio

So for Msc Dietetics (pre-registration) course: the tuition fee for UK/EU students starting full-time study in 2019/20 is £21,000 for the course which includes a placement supplement.

I recommend speaking to Jen SFE to get clear on the loan amount.

Let me know how you get on and if you have anymore questions,

Thanks,
Bridget

Hi EmilyMul24

The course leader came back to me about this:

"We still have places for 2020 entry and we have 2 more selection events – in September and November. The selection event comprises of a 1:1 interview and 2 group tasks. We can offer Skype interviews if needed and would be happy to accommodate this candidate in view of living in Ireland."

I can DM you with the course leaders contact details if you like?

Thanks,
Bridget

Hi,

I have applied to the course for January 2020, does anyone know the possible placement locations for the course? I live in Derby and have the commitments of a house and a child so I am a slightly concerned about the travel that could be involved with the course. Also does anyone know the start date in January?

Thanks x

Hi Kat_1991

The course leader came back to me:

The start date for the January 2020 course is Monday 13th January.

The placements are no more than 1 hours travel from Sheffield. Our current clinical placement providers are in Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Barnsley, Chesterfield and Derby. We try to ensure that students are offered their 1st choice for at least one of the 3 (A, B1 and C) clinical placements. The B2 placement which is scheduled in year 2 is for 7 weeks and this is based in Sheffield and the surrounding area. 3 out of the 4 placements are part-time, either 3 or 4 days a week, which we hope makes life easier for people with other commitments.

Let me know if you want to speak to the course leader directly - she is happy to answer any other queries.

Thanks,
Bridget
