Bond University Nutrition And Dietetics

For many people, food is something to be shared and enjoyed. For others, food can be a source of anxiety or illness. For all of us though, food has a major impact on our health.

Dietitians are healthcare professionals who improve the health of people (both individually and on a broader level), by applying their knowledge of human nutrition. 

Outcome-focused, dietitians are practical thinkers and have a thorough understanding of biological and behavioural health, supported by a solid evidence base.

Dietitians are in demand in a wide variety of settings, and this is only set to increase as the relationship between food and health becomes more prominent in our society.

To meet this growing demand, you could become a dietitian in just 2 years via our graduate-entry Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice program, or 4 years via our undergraduate pathway programs coupled with the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice.
