Core units

This course structure applies to students who commenced the course from 2019 onwards.

Students who completed an undergraduate degree from a non-cognate undergraduate study area (e.g. Arts, Commerce, Business, any non-health/science study areas, etc) must  complete either H511 Graduate Certificate of Human Nutrition or H616 Graduate Diploma of Human Nutrition first before enrolling into H714 人类营养学硕士.

Students who have completed H511  will receive  Recognition of Prior Learning for the 4 credit points already completed in H511 and then complete 8 credit points in the H714 course.

Students who completed H616 will receive Recognition of Prior Learning for the 8 credit points already completed in H616 and then complete 4 credits points in the H714 course.

Students who completed an undergraduate degree from a cognate study area may be granted preclusions for the units they have completed in their undergraduate course.

Preclusions mean that you are not required to undertake the specific units within the Masters course but you will need to choose another HSN7xx electives instead.

For example: H315 Bachelor of Nutrition Sciences student has completed HSN211 Nutritional Physiology, they can be precluded from HSN701 Principles of Nutrition and they will need to choose another HSN7XX unit to replace HSN701.
