營養學 Nutrition & Dieteties

nutrition dietetics

香港人不單對食物質素的要求愈來愈高,更因為接連發生的食物安全問題,而加倍注重飲食的來源及成份。不單追求純天然,非基因改進食品,更鑽研每樣食品的成份及對身體的影響。另外,近年政府和醫療機構對營養專家的需求亦增加了,希望能配合更多的人手以提倡健康飲食及推廣均衡飲食習慣,預防糖尿病等等的“富貴病”,以提高市民對健康飲食的認知。

在業內,營養師(Dietitian)是完成認可營養師培訓課程及取得認可專業資格人仕。該等課程必須包括臨床營養治療訓練;與營養師不同,營養學家(Nutritionist)是完成有關營養學位課程的人仕,但該等課程並不包括臨床營養治療學的相關培訓。

由於本港現時仍未有立法監管註冊營養師制度,只有相關的業界學會,所以香港機構在聘請營養相關職位時,會考慮已持有海外營養師專業資格的人士。所以有興趣成為執業營養師的人士,可選擇到海外升學,當中美國、加拿大、澳洲和英國都有註冊營養師制度,而眾多國家之中,以澳洲最受學生歡迎。

澳洲有13間大學提供受澳洲營養師協會認可的本科或研究生課程,部份分開教授營養學Nutrition及飲食學Dietetics,亦分別提供本科及研究生的課程,可讓不同學歷程度的學生報讀,而基於澳洲人都熱衷報讀這個學科,所以收生要求是頗高的。

一般而言,香港學生完成中學文憑試便可申請澳洲營養學課程,但如果學生的公開考試成績或英語成績未能達入學要求,學生亦可透過修讀一年制大學基礎班FOUNDATION後升讀本科。如果本港大學本科畢業生想繼續進修,亦可報讀澳洲研究生課程,經當地營養師協會查核資歷後有機會成為註冊營養師。

BSc Nutrition and Dietetics (3 years full time)

Our BSc Nutrition and Dietetics course has been specifically designed for students with a strong interest in food, people, science and medicine, who wish to use their knowledge to help prevent and treat disease as a registered dietitian.

Dietetics involves translating nutritional science and information about food into practical dietary advice. This may be aimed at the general public to promote health, or in a clinical environment to treat a wide range of medical disorders.

You will learn how food intake and dietary requirements can be altered by illness, and how to apply therapeutic diets to treat disease. The course will give you the knowledge and skills to respond to the diverse needs of patients, families and carers within a variety of settings.

Our BSc Nutrition and Dietetics course is accredited by the British Dietetic Association and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council.
