The program is in line with the requirements of international professional bodies such as the European Federation of the Association of Dietitians (EFAD), the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in the US and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) of the UK.
An important element of the Nutrition and Dietetics degree is the practical training that students experience throughout their studies. Complementary to the clinical training students gain at the university's laboratories, the strength of the program comes from its extensive internship opportunities with more than 23 different sectors such as hospitals, health centers, municipal health centers, nursing homes, camps, sports federations, gyms, nurseries, schools and food industries.
An integral component of the program curriculum is the practical application of knowledge through the development of nutritional plans and diets, covering a wide range of physiological and clinical incidents. This gives students a significant occupational advantage and facilitates their integration into the labor market.
The competitive advantage of the program is the training of students in specialized nutrition software. More specifically, the software provides students the ability to analyze the nutritional plans (diets) in a modern computer lab. This allows the verification of a dietary instruction before its practical application.
