Below are five international programs in dietetics that have been recognized by ACEND® under the Foreign Dietitian Education (FDE) Standards or International Dietitian Education (IDE) Standards.

ACEND® recognition is granted to dietetics programs located in colleges or universities outside the U.S. and its territories based on review of an eligibility application, self-study and site visit by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND®). This recognizes that the program as reviewed is comparable in content and experience to a US-based program meeting the ACEND® Accreditation Standards.
