SELECTION PROCEDURE (Department of Nutrition and Dietetics)
Selection for interview is based on your UCAS application. Candidates will be short-listed and invited to attend a department open day between January and March which will include a tour, a lecture, an interview and lunch.
In addition to academic entry requirements, we are keen to ensure that applicants for the Nutrition & Dietetics BSc (B401) have had some experience working, volunteering or shadowing in a health or social care environment that is relevant to nutrition and dietetics. This could include a nursing or residential home, children’s play group, catering kitchen or hospital.
Applicants who live in London who wish to shadow a dietitian are requested not to contact clinical departments directly, due to the current constraints on NHS resources within London. Instead, you should attend one of the Careers in Dietetics open days organised by local dietitians. For further details please visit http://www.londondietetics.co.uk.
Once you have attended one of these open days you will be provided with an attendance certificate. If you are shortlisted for an interview for the Nutrition & Dietetics BSc at King's, you should bring a copy of this certificate with you and give it to your interviewers.
Applicants from outside London may be able to organise an opportunity to shadow a dietitian working within a hospital or community setting. If you are able to shadow a dietitian you will need to complete the “Shadowing a dietitian” form available at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/medicine/study/ug/Record-of-shadowing-a-dietitian.pdf
If you are shortlisted for interview then you should bring this form with you and give it to your interviewers.
Please refer to the UCAS website for application deadline dates, or contact the relevant Admissions Office for further advice.
If your course requires you to apply directly to King's, or through another alternative route, please refer to the selection procedure text and use the 'Apply' button to the left to access the application form/further details.
