TEACHING LOCATION OF THE DEGREE PROGRAM

In order to be admitted to the study course in Dietistic, it is necessary to hold a five-year upper-secondary school diploma or another qualification obtained abroad and recognised as suitable.

An admission test is required for admission, and therefore selection is based on the outcome of the test itself. It consists of multiple-choice questions defined by the University of Brescia (covering topics of general and specific culture) and will be taken on the date that will be indicated in the notice. 

Pursuant to Legislative Decree 81/08 and subsequent amendments and additions, the student will undergo an assessment of psycho-physical suitability to carry out the activities of the specific professional profile. The assessment of permanent unfitness shall result in the forfeiture of the student's status on the degree course.

The three-year degree in Dietistic entails qualification to practise as a dietician and ensures the possibility of both immediate entry into the world of work and access to master's degree courses that can further enrich the training curriculum.

It offers the opportunity to collaborate in the Unibs sostenibile project: the university participates in the 17 goals established by the UN 2030 Agenda. In terms of improving the wellbeing of populations, the second goal set by the UN is ‘zero hunger’ (see United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition).
