What's it about?

As a dietician, you are already an expert in clinical diet therapy and nutrition counselling. Are you interested in looking at nutritional medical issues from a scientific perspective and strengthening the specialist discipline of dietetics?

Then the additive Bachelor's degree programme Dietetics on campus based programme is just right for you! The scientifically oriented study programme builds on the dietician training and training contents are credited to you within the framework of 45 ECTS on the six-semester study programme, so that a shortening of the study programme to 4-5 semesters is possible depending on the extent of previous professional experience.

Study content and procedure

The six-semester study programme full-time study builds on the training in the vocational schools for dietetic assistance (dietetic schools). As 45 ECTS from the training are recognised to you, you can complete the study programme in four to five semesters, depending on the extent of your previous professional experience. Modules from the fields of dietetics and nutrition science, dietary counselling, health care, social, cultural and economic sciences are studied.

The professional practical semester can be completed at a recognised institution from the entire spectrum of dietetics and linked to the Bachelor thesis. The online elective modules also offer flexibility for stays abroad.

Career prospects

Due to demographic change and the increase in diseases of civilisation such as diabetes, obesity or allergies, the need for dietetic competence will rise sharply in the coming decades.

Graduates of the additive bachelor's degree programme Dietetics are the experts for clinical diet therapy and nutrition counselling.

They work in an interdisciplinary manner at the interface for the implementation of scientific findings in dietetics in practice. They develop strategies and concepts for dietetic issues. The focus is on individual counselling of patients.

Occupational fields can be found in the health sector, especially in clinics and hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, nursing homes, health insurance companies as well as research institutions and manufacturers of dietetic food.

A Master's degree in Germany or abroad is also possible afterwards.
