Dietician pathway

I’m just finishing my second year of sport and health science. Does anyone know pathways to become a dietitian through this degree - a 2 years masters is overwhelming ( money wise) does anyone have any other knowledge of different pathways. That is unknown. Also can u become a dietician with a nutritional masters or not. Thanks

You could look for a two-year pre-registration dietetics masters course if you meet the entry requirements. For example:

Students are usually eligible to apply for undegraduate funding for pre-reg healthcare courses so that would be for both tuition fee and maintenance loans. If you study at a uni in England, then you would also be able to apply to the NHS Learning Support Fund which pays an annual training grant of £5,000 per year and other benefits:

Use the NHS course finder to search for approved courses:
