Hello

Thank you for choosing CareerGuide and writing to us. A Dietitian is a highly recognizable career than the previous years. To become a Dietitian, one needs to have relevant qualification.

  1. Should have studied Biology and Chemistry at the high school level. For this choosing PCM/ PCMB route will help.

  2. Study a BSc Food nutrition and dietics degree and have obtained a minimum first class pass. Students who have not studied Biology and Chemistry at school level cannot be able to study further degrees related to Dietics at college level but may wish to consider post graduate courses like the Diploma, PG Diploma at correspondence yet these correspondence courses could only help satisfy personal interest and not help with professional interest. The scope of developing one further in careers could be achieved by upgrading the theoretical/ academic knowledge in the subject. And yes, for this reason choosing to study a Masters degree will be very helpful.

In the past years, doing a basic degree like the Bachelors degree was alone of a lot help to get jobs but in the contemporary world, a basic Bachelor degree will alone not help to sustain one's career. I am not here to argue that a Masters degree is 100% necessary but I state that a Master's degree will offer better scope and prospects than only a Bachelor degree could offer. To be more specific, it also depends on the type of career you choose to work. For example, if you prefer teaching at schools, colleges or universities then you are highly deemed to study a Masters degree and also a PhD to hold academic teaching positions. Where as if you prefer to engage with research, a Masters degree is the basic eligibility criteria and it is a must. Considering the fact that Masters degree are designed to offer in-depth knowledge in specific routes, narrow down your specialisations, and also offers education with a research element they are more helpful in making students competitive in the world of work rather than students holding only a bachelors degree. If you are considering employment in research and development department at food industries and pharmaceutical industries, a masters degree is more considerable than a bachelors degree. Employers prefer students with higher research degrees to be recruited in their research divisions. It is therefore advisable to have a Masters degree to pursue a specialist route as with a Bachelors degree you can only have a generalist route. In fact with a masters degree you can opt to work for one segment or industry like the sport dietitian, celebrity dietitian, beauty pageant dietitian, health administrator at NGO's and so on. A Masters degree will also be of good help to give you promotions in career than a candidate holding a Bachelors degree. So a masters degree always help.
