Human Nutrition & Dietetics

Dietitians apply knowledge of food, nutrition and other disciplines such as biochemistry, physiology and social science to promote health, prevent disease and help to manage illness. This course offers you an integrated training in the science of nutrition and dietetics, and its applications to human health and well-being both at the individual and community level. This joint TU Dublin/TCD BSc course is the only such degree course in the Republic of Ireland. Students are registered in TU Dublin and TCD. The broad aim of the course is to produce graduates who are competent to practice at entry level as a dietitian or public health nutritionist or work as a nutrition expert in the industrial and/or private sector. You’ll learn how to apply core science knowledge to dietetics and human nutrition, and will develop scientific and analytical skills. To ensure capacity for evidence-based practice, there’s a strong emphasis on developing problem-solving skills, and the ability to review and critically evaluate scientific data and information and to undertake research and development in dietetics and nutrition. You’ll benefit greatly from work placements in Years 1, 2 and 4.
