Good course overall but there are no jobs in the industry and no support to find work.

CourseMaster of Dietetics
Completion date2013
Study modeBlended
Great course, very informative content and great ability to gain practical experience in both the clinical and community dietetic setting. It is very clinical focused however and with the limited number of clinical graduate positions available it would have been ideal to have been more prepared to enter the private consulting sector. Content was thorough, up to date and delivered effectively. Good industry connections and networking opportunities.
Response from Deakin University
Thanks for your review about the Master of Dietetics. We are glad to hear that you got a lot out of the course, with plenty of networking opportunities and practical experiences. We believe that the best learning happens when you combine both theory and practical experience into the course.

The course is well designed and run proficiently. However, they don’t provide much practical work or information in regards to getting a job after study.

I thoroughly enjoyed the content and was inspired by my lecturers, particularly those in the Nutrition and Chemistry teams. When I sought help on any topic most lecturers would be more than happy to spend a good amount of time explaining things.
Response from Deakin University
Thanks for your review. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the course and benefited from our world-class lecturers!

The course was great. All staff were fantastic in supporting every individuals learning needs. It was a non judgemental environment which helped with being able to ask those 'silly' questions.

The university and teachers were all fantastic, however I feel as though there was too much theory and not enough practical sessions relating to real life scenarios. I finished my degree with very little confidence about being prepared to enter the workforce.

This bachelor course was a good foundation of learning. Further study is recommended in order to succeed in a path in the health industry. Like any school, you will come across good and bad lecturers/tutors. You must turn up, and put in the time and work to do well. Deakin Burwood is a fantastic campus, with all amenities available to a range of needs. However, would I go back in time and go to University again? No I would not.

The course was easily followed and learn. It was not too many new things to learn in the nutrition theory however it provided us opportunitiy to think ahead how we should approach client or patients.

Support and delivery

How Deakin's online courses are delivered

As an online student you’ll watch lectures, complete readings and participate in tutorials, just like an on-campus student.

The difference is you’ll do this online, when it suits you.

Deakin was one of the first universities in Australia to deliver courses for off-campus students,

and they pride themselves on an online learning system that is cutting-edge, engaging and easy to use.

Through their platform CloudDeakin, you’ll:

  • Access almost all your learning resources
  • Watch the same lectures that are delivered on-campus, and
  • Interact with your tutors (you'll have one dedicated tutor for each unit)

You’ll also be involved in conversations with other students and your tutors through virtual classrooms and discussion boards.

Support services for online students

You can access the same support services as on-campus students – either via Deakin’s website, over the phone, on Skype,

or in person if you are near a Deakin campus.

Specialist online advisers can help you develop successful study skills, discuss your course direction and provide career guidance.

You can also access:

  • Online library support
  • Counselling
  • Financial assistance
  • Medical services and more

The online orientation at the start of your course will introduce you to helpful resources.
