In 2013, the Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci) with a major in Community Nutrition was replaced with the above-mentioned Health Science qualification endorsed in Human Nutrition. If you've completed CMNX papers towards the PGDipSci (Community Nutrition), you can transition to the new Health Science qualifications, receiving credit for CMNX401, CMNX402, CMNX406, CMNX407 as NUTN401, NUTN402, NUTN404, and NUTN407, respectively.
The programmes offered are:
• Postgraduate Certificate in Health Sciences endorsed in Human Nutrition
• Postgraduate Diploma in Health Sciences endorsed in Human Nutrition
• Master of Health Sciences endorsed in Human Nutrition
For example, if you have completed one CMNX paper you will be eligible to enter the PGCertHealSc programme (provided you are able to fulfil the requirements for the Certificate in the specified timeframe) and have the respective NUTX paper credited from your completed CMNX paper. Alternatively, you can transition from the PG Dip Community Nutrition to the PG Dip Health Sciences (Endorsed in Human Nutrition).
