Masters Degree in Weight Management
2 to 4 Years
This part-time programme commenced in Sept 2010 and is run in Dublin in association with the National Obesity Forum.
It was the first of its type in the UK and is delivered by a team of experienced academics, GPs, hospital doctors, surgeons, dieticians, nutritionists, exercise specialists and psychologists.
Whilst this multidisciplinary programme is focused professional development programme aimed at healthcare professionals from worldwide, it is also suitable for newly qualified graduates aspiring to work in this high-profile area.
The programme is highly flexible allowing students to study alongside personal and work commitments. This is achieved through modules being delivered over three days followed by eight weeks of home-based learning. Students travel from all over Ireland for the series of six three day modules which is then followed by their personal research project.
This programme aims:
- to encourage a critically and theoretically informed, reflective and multi-disciplinary approach to academic study and professional practice relevant to weight management
- to build upon and extend previous knowledge and understanding of the research base for both theoretical and applied aspects of weight management
- to increase awareness and insight into both inter and intra-professional and ethical issues relevant to the practice of weight management in the era of evidence-based practice.
This Masters Programme is delivered by an experienced team of academic staff from the Department of Clinical Sciences in the Faculty of Applied Sciences, together with University-approved visiting lecturers and practitioners from clinical settings.
