"I'm currently a registered Dietitian at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust and I'm working as a Research Assistant within the Department of Nutritional Sciences at Surrey."

Why I chose Surrey

It was a top university for the course I wanted to study. It had and still has a beautiful campus and very welcoming students and staff.

My course

The best things about my BSc (Hons) Nutrition and Dietetics course were the clinical placements and the opportunities to further my career in my final year. Working on my dissertation with some amazing colleagues and academics is still one of my fondest memories.

My career and development

As time went on, I became much more independent and found the career path I want to take. I gained the tools and opportunities I needed to be able to have the career I want.

I'm currently a registered Dietitian at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust and I'm working as a Research Assistant within the Department of Nutritional Sciences at Surrey. I'm also in the process of starting my own business and keeping my eye out for a PhD!

My advice

Get to know the academics very well as they are always willing to support you and give you opportunities to further your knowledge and skills and that can really make a difference to your career opportunities.
