Course Summary

This programme, provided by the internationally renowned UCL Division of Medicine, is intended for all professionals wishing to work in the eating disorders field at a high level. The qualifications (MSc, Diploma, Certificate) will appeal to clinicians and scientists who wish to provide treatment, develop services and conduct research in this field. This MSc provides a sound programme in human nutrition covering practical approaches, research methods and nutrition in the general population and in disease states. Eating disorders are presented using different teaching methods with an extensive series of seminars, tutorials and brief clinical attachments at St Ann's, Maudsley and other Hospitals. Students will also undertake a significant research project.

Employability

This degree will give graduates a clear advantage when applying for clinical and research positions in units in which children, adolescents or adults with eating disorders are assessed, treated and recruited into research programmes. It is particularly relevant for individuals wishing to apply for senior positions in these units, as well as graduates who aspire to studying for a doctorate in the eating disorders field. Surveys have shown that eating disorder services are continuing to develop in all parts of the country, providing substantial opportunities for employment in this burgeoning field. Students should note that although our degree is very clinically focused, it is not clinical training, and therefore successful graduation does not qualify you to work independently with patients with eating disorders.

Optional qualifications

This degree is also available as a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate with fees set accordingly.

Accreditation

This MSc is registered with the Association for Nutrition, a professional body that holds the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN), a competency-based register of nutritionists. Graduates of this programme will be eligible to apply for direct entry to the UKVRN as Registered Associate Nutritionists.
