Student review
In terms of the nutritional aspect, the course was poor in this area. We had one nutrition topic a semester, the rest was general science courses (I.e chemistry, biology, physiology, biochemistry, microbiology). There was no placement so it was difficult to say you were competant going out into the workforce. The course is split into 2 streams (I.e food science and nutrition) and I think majority of the course is more food science based more than anything. A lot of those who did the food science stream found no difficulty getting jobs after. I know that most of the people who did the nutrition side either studied something different the following year or went on and did dietetics (at flinders seeing as they cancelled the dietetics course the year I graduated - 2015). If you want a general background of nutrition and food science then the course may be something for you. If you want a career in nutrition I would look for a more in-depth practical based course!
