Why Teesside?

I always wanted to follow this career path as I have had an interest in health and nutrition since I was young. This was made easy when Teesside announced it was opening the MSc Dietetics course. I had heard good things about Teesside and did not hesitate to apply.

What did you like most about your course?

Going on placement to gain experience in a professional environment. It is great being able to put the knowledge I have learned so far to practice. I also enjoy interacting with patients and learning how to best deal with each unique individual and situation.

Do you like the campus facilities?

Services on campus are brilliant! The library is open 24 hours a day which is useful, especially if you have other commitments in your life. I also spend a lot of my time at the Students’ Union with my friends outside of lessons to relax and have fun. Student Futures can help you make sure your CV is perfect and can also support you finding a job or work experience after your studies.

Did you enjoy your time on placement?

I have completed an introductory placement and two longer placements in two trusts. Both were very welcoming and friendly, and provided me with a great industry experience, as well as allowing me to consolidate my academic learning.

Would you recommend Teesside?

If you are looking to become a dietitian, I would recommend Teesside and especially this course. The staff are very friendly and always available to help if you are confused or stuck on any of the work. The trusts in the area are also very welcoming to students and provide a great experience.
