Whether you are looking to attend a university, you’ll find your choice university.
Perhaps, you want to enter a polytechnic, I added polytechnics as a bonus.
Moreover, many students have been looking for universities where they can study Human Nutrition and Dietetics. You’re certainly among them.
And, you’ll find the answer you need on this page.
Human Nutrition is a new course in most Nigerian universities. However, it’s getting more popular each year.
More importantly, not all universities have accreditation to offer Human Nutrition and Dietetics.
That’s why I make sure only universities that have accreditation to offer the course make this list.
First, let me reveal something to you.
It’s important you know that Human Nutrition and Dietetics is a versatile course.
If you ask me, Nutrition and Dietetics is the next big thing in the medical profession in Nigeria. Because, it is already being accepted widely that ‘diet is the best medicine’.
Many people just didn’t know it. The great part is, they are beginning to know and accept it.
This is why most people visiting the hospitals request to see Dietitians these days. And physicians are now starting to take postgraduate courses in Nutrition to meet up.
That’s a secret! Guard it closely and see opportunities!
While some universities offer it as a medical course, others offer it as an agricultural course.
That explains why Human Nutrition and Dietetics is a course in the college of medical sciences in some schools.
Whereas, it’s a course in the faculty of agriculture in other schools…simply as Nutrition and Dietetics.
I’m glad you now know a lot more about this course that catches your fancy. So, let me take you through universities offering Nutrition and Dietetics.
Take note that I’ll specify the faculty where Human Nutrition and Dietetics is in these universities.
