ABOUT THE DIETETICS WITH NUTRITION DEGREE

What is the difference between a dietician and a nutritionist? Nutrition is the science that deals with the study of foods and nutrients, and their effect on an individual. On the other hand, Dietetics is the practical application of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease.

Graduates of IMU’s Dietetics with Nutrition Degree programme will be able to work as dietitians in the government and private sectors, providing healthcare services, food service management, and counselling in disease management and prevention.

This 4-year programme provides an advantage for employment as students are exposed to a variety of work placements such as food service, clinical dietetics and community dietetics.
