Pramila Gurung Dec. 13, 2020, 7:15 a.m.

Hi there,
I finished my bachelor's in hotel management and was wondering if my course makes me eligible for masters in nutrition??

Charlotte King Dec. 13, 2020, 10:27 a.m.

Hi Pramila – different Nutrition masters will have different entry requirements – and some will definitely require the bachelors degree to be in a relevant topic. However if you have a good grade in your BA (2.1) and some relevant experience you may well be eligible. I suggest you contact the admissions teams on the courses you are interested in and see what their entry criteria is. Good luck!

Bahar Hajilou Jan. 23, 2021, 12:16 a.m.

I am a UK citizen living in London and I have graduated with Bachelor of science in Nutrition & Health and I currently am studying my master's of science in Clinical Nutrition at a university in London.

I would like to apply for PhD in either clinical nutrition or Nutrition & Dietetics at a valid good university which degrees' will be accepted by other countries around the world. Doesn't matter where it is either in the UK or Europe.

I would prefer if the funding is either paid or is free or at least it is not that high.

I would really appreciate if you help me towards this and let me know of anything that I should know.

Kind regards,
Bahar Hajilou

Charlotte King March 22, 2021, 8 a.m.

Hi Anu – as long as your BSc degree is from a registered university in India, has the required grades (usually 2.1 or equivalent) and you meet the English language requirements you should be able to study your masters overseas at a European/UK university. Good luck!

Charlotte King March 22, 2021, 8:06 a.m.

Hi Grace – Here is a list of all the European universities currently offering a masters program in Nutrition > https://www.postgrad.com/courses/nutrition/europe/
Different universities will charge different tuition fees – for example a postgraduate course at the University of Copenhagen is more affordable for international students than many other universities in other European countries including the UK. However it is worth checking what funding opportunities individual universities have for their PG programs so take time to do some research into all aspects of tuition fees and funding.

jeneena Celestine March 31, 2021, 6:11 p.m.
