Bachelor of Nutrition Science

There is a need for nutritionists who can explain the science underpinning the relationship between diet and disease to the general public. That's why studying a Bachelor of Nutrition Science at Monash is such a healthy investment.

As a Nutrition Science graduate you will be able to pursue a career in the food industry, nutrition research, food and health policy or public health and provide eligibility for dietetic studies. The Bachelor of Nutrition Science at Monash is the only program in Australia accredited with The UK Association for Nutrition (AfN). Graduates are eligible to register as Associate Nutritionist in the UK and recognised in the UK and Europe for employment. Graduates are also eligible to apply for membership of the Nutrition Society of Australia (NSA).

High achieving students (an ATAR of 90 or above) can apply to be admitted to the Bachelor of Nutrition Science Scholars Program, which provides a direct pathway to a Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) accredited course enabling graduates to apply for accreditation as dietitians. Students who do not qualify for the Scholars' program may be offered admission to the Bachelor of Nutrition Science and, as graduates, will still be eligible to compete for entry into the 1.5-year Masters in Dietetics at Monash. The details are in the special note below.
