"The Bachelor of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences appealed to me because of the wide range of nutrition subjects available. In other programs, the nutrition component was not of high importance. This attracted me to this especially because I knew I wanted to go into the Masters of Dietetics Studies and knew it would assist me."
