What will I learn?

Dietitians provide nutrition-focussed interventions and preventive services in clinical and community settings by applying scientific knowledge of food and human nutrition to maintain and promote the health of individuals and groups, and to manage various medical conditions. Dietitians also lead research in disease prevention and health promotion strategies to reduce mortality rates whilst improving the overall quality of life.

The Bachelor of Science with Honours in Dietetics and Nutrition is a four-year direct honours programme that aims to address the growing demand for dietetics manpower in hospitals and intermediate long-term care (ILTC) settings in Singapore. As the first dietetics degree programme to be offered by an autonomous university in Singapore, this programme aims to provide students with evidence-based theoretical knowledge, research skills, and practical experience across all domains of dietetic practice (individual clinical case management, community and public health nutrition, and foodservice management). The programme has been designed to meet the academic requirements and clinical competencies for entry-level professional dietitians based on international educational standards for professional dietetic practice. The curriculum has been developed in close consultation with chief dietitians from the major healthcare clusters in Singapore in order to provide students with up-to-date and relevant knowledge, as well as specialised skills in all domains of dietetic practice.


The Bachelor of Science with Honours in Dietetics and Nutrition degree programme is designed to produce theoretically-grounded, research-driven and clinically-competent graduates to practice autonomously in all domains of dietetics, in line with the international educational standards for professional dietetic practice. The curriculum is comparable to established overseas degree programmes in dietetics, but unique with regard to longer clinical practice education as well as customised to the Asian dietary context.

Career Opportunities

Graduates can be employed as dietitians in a variety of settings, such as hospitals, private practices, polyclinics, community hospitals, intermediate and long-term care organisations including nursing homes and rehabilitation centres.
