The MSc Nutritional Therapy will include 48 weeks of learning, which is required to include the clinic and dissertation modules in one academic year for students who wish to study full time.
You are taught through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous online lectures, workshops, seminars, role plays and other online activities. Face to face teaching, workshops, seminars and group activities (e.g., role plays) will comprise the attendance days.
The precise contact hours (online or face to face) will depend on your mode of study (full or part time) and the modules selected. For example, you will have less contact time in the Dissertation module because the focus is independent study, and there may be more contact time in the Clinical practice module due to the time allocated to live clinic consultations.
Typically contact time for a 15-credit module will be structured around:
30 hours Synchronous and asynchronous lectures/seminars/practical activity (approximately 6-12 hours synchronous).
Typically contact time for a 30-credit module will be structured around:
60 hours Synchronous and asynchronous lectures/seminars/practical activity (approximately 12-24 hours synchronous).
