The Australian Government’s Job Outlook rates the future growth in demand for dietitians as strong.
More than 85% of nutritionists and dietitians work in the broad area of health care and social assistance, including:
- Hospitals and outpatient facilities
- Aged care facilities
- Private nutrition / dietetic practice
- Community and public health nutrition
- Nutrition and dietetic research
This versatile field can also lead to career opportunities in public administration and safety, education, and training (childcare and schools), corporate health and wellness, food service management, sports nutrition, nutrition communications and media, and the food industry.
The Graduate Certificate in Nutrition has been designed to upskill graduates and health professionals to prepare them for a range of career opportunities in both traditional and non-traditional roles.
