A nutrition degree isn’t a hard one to get in Nigeria, several tertiary institutions offer this course. I’ll be mentioning a few of them, but before I do that, let’s talk about what this course is all about.
Nutrition and dietetics is a subset of Medicine, it’s a science that concentrates on food, its effects on our health, and wellness. In some universities, it isn’t a department under the faculty of medicine, it could be agriculture.
Also, some universities do not have accreditation for this course, I’ll be mentioning only schools that this course is accredited.
