What is the difference between a dietician and a nutritionist? Nutrition is the science that deals with the study of foods and nutrients, and their effect on an individual. On the other hand, Dietetics is the practical application of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease.
Graduates of IMU’s Dietetics with Nutrition Degree programme will be able to work as dietitians in the government and private sectors, providing healthcare services, food service management, and counselling in disease management and prevention.
This 4-year programme provides an advantage for employment as students are exposed to a variety of work placements such as food service, clinical dietetics and community dietetics.
The BSc(Hons) Dietetics with Nutrition programme in IMU has been awarded the International Accreditation for Education Programs for Dietitian-Nutritionists conferred by the International Confederation of Dietetics Association (ICDA). This ICDA award is a recognition that the IMU dietetics with nutrition curriculum has met the standards to produce competent dietitians upon graduation. The award will also enhance the international reputation of the programme in member countries of ICDA. We are the first university in the world to receive this inaugural award by ICDA.

CAMPUS ENVIRONMENT & FACILITIES
Definitely, practicum year has helped us to build up our interpersonal skills and prepared us well for the working life. Being placed at different settings such as hospital, Klinik Kesihatan and in the community has gained me an insight in Malaysia’s healthcare settings. Reading through medical notes and understanding the subjects’ conditions are required in my current job as the subject’s safety during their participation in the study is our main priority. Placement in a hospital setting has given us this opportunity to practice reading medical notes.

IMU helped me by really providing me the platform to see the world. As mentioned earlier, I felt the best part of the entire programme was really the attachments in different places. However, research has also given me a new paradigm on the way I do things now. I’m much more analytical that I used to be, questioning everything and looking for evidences to support a hypothesis. I apply that approach in almost everything I do now, including my cooking, which has certainly made me a better chef, a better dietitian and definitely a better person

IMU‘s learning experience was a memorable one as it has taught me to be confident yet flexible when I’m faced with uncertainties, and to have the guts in trying out new things without fear.
