Swinburne University of Technology - Master of Dietetics

Applications close 1 May 2019
The Master of Dietetics at Swinburne aims to educate and empower the next generation of dietitians to be nutrition experts and innovators making a positive impact on the health of Australians.

Students will develop their skills in traditional areas of dietetic practice – clinical practice, community and public health nutrition and food service management – as well as the emerging and growing fields of entrepreneurship and private practice, research, nutrigenomics, aged care, corporate health, digital health, food sustainability and supply, food innovation and sport.

The structure of the Master of Dietetics aligns with the requirements set out by the Dietitians Association of Australia. The course comprises 15 compulsory units of study – 11 theory-based units and four professional practice placement units.

Students will engage in a variety of learning experiences including Problem Based Learning; case studies; practical skill development using the teaching kitchen, food science laboratory and videoed consult rooms; and experience in real-world research.

Placements will take place in three required domains including clinical and individual case management, community and public health nutrition, and food service management.

Research projects will be undertaken to further enhance skill development and exposure to the evidence base in nutrition and dietetics.


Mastering the art of dietetics

As of July 2018, we’re cooking up a storm with the launch of our brand new Master of Dietetics course. Coming fully equipped with 12 kitchen stations, a food science lab and two-way consultation rooms, it’ll feel less like a classroom for students, and more like our very own set of MasterChef.
