Internationally Educated Dietitians

UBC does not offer an upgrading program for internationally educated dietitians.

Please refer inquiries about professional upgrading and registration to the College of Dietitians of British Columbia (CDBC).

Once candidates are assessed by CDBC, those requiring course upgrading are given a list of approved upgrading course options, which includes a few UBC courses.  NOTE: Candidates wishing to pursue upgrading coursework at UBC must meet UBC’s admission requirements, as well as fulfill any prerequisite course requirements in place for each of the courses they wish to register for.

If CDBC deems that a candidate does not meet their criteria to pursue dietetics registration via upgrading, the candidate would have to complete a full dietetics degree program in order to become a registered dietitian.
