Hello

I have an undergraduate degree and a masters by research, both in nutrition. I would love to study dietetics and have been looking at a 2 year dietetics postgraduate degree. I think that this is an exceptions course and just want to check if I would be eligible for student finance, even though I have already had finance for my first 2 degrees.

Thanks

Hi Isaac
The university of Chester, Nutrition and Dietetics MSc.
Thanks
The "MSC Nutrition and Dietetics" course at the University of Chester with the course code PMSNUDI is a postgraduate healthcare exception course.
The course attracts undergraduate funding.
You can only be funded if you are not already registered in this field. As you have already had a degree in Nutrition and are registered in this field, I do not think you will be eligible - however you can apply and our assessors will make a decision.
Thanks, Isaac

Hi Issac

Thank you. How do you define registered in the field? I do not work in nutrition, I work in an unrelated job in sexual health. Does registered mean you have studied before?

Thanks

For example if a student studied a Bsc Adult Nursing course and gain the qualification - the student is then pre registered in Adult Nursing. If they then decide to study a masters course in Midwifery, the student is pre-registered in Adult Nursing but not in the subject of study so will be eligible.
If they applied for a masters in Adult Nursing they will be ineligible.

In your case you are pre registered as you already studied Nutrition and gained the qualification.

Thank you for your reply. I read that and understood that for example if someone with a degree in adult nursing then went on to study mental health nursing then they would receive funding as it is a different area of nursing.

With my previous nutrition degree I am able to work as a nutritionist, however I am not able to work as a dietician without a dietetics degree. So although they are the same field they are different degrees like adult nursing/mental health nursing. Would I qualify on this basis and is it a case of applying to student finance and appealing on this basis if the application is rejected?

When can I apply to student finance for 2022 funding?

Thank you so much for replying, I appreciate your time.

You're welcome Ella. From my understanding I think you won't be eligible.
You will be able to apply on the 01/03/2021 for the undergraduate funding.

I advise you to apply as soon as you can and you should have a decision from the assessors rather quickly.
Thanks, Isaac

Hi Issac

Thank you, I understand what you are saying and can only apply and hope for the best. Fees for MSc dietetics are £16k per year, does this mean if I would somehow get funding that would be up to £9250 and then the rest is self funded?

thanks

If the university require more than 9250 for the MSC Nutrition and Dietetics course then you will have to self fund or use some of your Maintenance Loan to help cover the cost.

Hi i am in a similar situation and studied BSc food science and nutrition and MSc clinical and public health nutrition - does this mean I can't access the 5000 nhs bursary as the additional masters I want to study is nutrition and dietetics even though this will qualify me as a dietitian but my other degrees haven't?

Hi, you can get funding for the Nutrition & Dietetics course as long as you are not professionally registered in this field already.
Thanks, Isaac
