Our Programs




PG Diploma


MSc. in Nutritional Sciences and Dietetics

MSc. in Nutritional Sciences and Dietetics is a 2-year full-time post graduate Master's Program with specializations in one of the following three areas: Nutrigenomics / Nutraceuticals and Gut Health / Dietetics. Nutrigenomics Specialization will enable students to work in Nutrigenomic Research Institutes and Advanced Health & Wellness centers. As a Nutrigenomics Professional, it is critical to learn and understand the relationship between genes and nutrients as well as the genetic variants of patients. This will enable students to design effective, genetically-focused, customized nutritional programs. On successful completion of this Specialized Master's Program, students will be well-placed to comprehend the information included in genetic tests and will be able to translate it into nutritional recommendations for their patients.

Awareness about the role of food in maintaining good health and prevention of disease has increased dramatically resulting in a huge market opportunity for Nutraceuticals. The Nutraceuticals industry will need an increasing body of specialist trained manpower. Nutraceuticals and Gut Health students will study food elements, supplements and nutrients and their impact on the human body. Nutraceuticals are nutritional products which provide medicinal benefits in addition to their regular nutritional value (Nutrition + Pharmaceuticals).

Students of Dietetics will study the relationship between Nutrition and Disease Management.

Highlights of the program:

Students are expected to REGISTER online, APPLY by submitting information, RESERVE a timeslot and date for PERSONAL INTERVIEW (with online option) by paying Rs.1000 and SUBMIT the application. After the Personal Interview is conducted, university announces the selection based on your performance and other credentials. Student can secure their admission by paying the fees. Post lockdown, student has to visit the campus, submit the documents for confirmed admission.

There are NO entrance tests conducted by the University . While we await directives from the government on national entrance tests to be conducted, we accept scores of any national level entrance test including JEE Main, MHCET, NATA etc. for B.Tech. and B.Arch. admissions as applicable. We recommend – students should go ahead and take provisional admission as explained in the last FAQ for B.Tech. and other programs except B.Arch. For B.Arch. admissions, students can go ahead and apply online and complete Personal Interview stage.

University offers provisional admission before the announcement of 12 th std results and after submission of required documents admission can be confirmed after declaration of results, as explained in earlier FAQs. Our faculty and academic counsellors will help the student decide a program most suited to his/her interest and help secure a seat with the university.

To make sure that we all follow lockdown instructions and norms, Symbiosis Skills Universities have virtual admission process http://www.ssou.ac.in/Admissionsimplified4u/ . It will walk you through the campus, make you book a counselling with faculty, you can hear out from existing students, you can ask for a call back – all this by staying home and secure. This will lead you to take the provisional admission in the program of your choice too. Once the lockdown is over, you can visit the campus and confirm the admission by completing the remaining formality and submitting the documents.

Symbiosis has been a pioneer in using education technology in India. When e-learning was still evolving, we had more than 100,000 students take online classes and live assessment using technology. Even for our existing students, learning continued amid lockdown seamlessly through our learning platforms and assessment engine. In worst case, we shall start our new year teaching learning with the help of the technology platforms and we are sure that it will be equally or more effective than in class learning!
