Course content

Help tackle the big public health issues of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease by becoming an expert in food and nutrition.

By analysing how lifestyle affects food and nutrition, the vested interests of the food industry and the role of food and nutrition in disease, you will gain a solid understanding of current issues, enabling you to make a positive difference in a variety of nutrition-related roles around the world.

You will develop a range of practical skills, including the ability to devise programmes for interventions, secure funding from commissioners and report your findings to wider audiences. By working face-to-face with community groups, you will understand how to successfully engage with audiences and influence behaviour change using websites, media presentations, workshops and social media.

Our links with employers in the field of nutrition will ensure you have an opportunity to integrate work experience alongside your academic study, enhancing your employability when you qualify and enabling you to meet the Association for Nutrition competencies to become a registered Associate Nutritionist when you graduate. If you have a degree in a health, science, psychology or sport-related subject coupled with an interest in food and nutrition and its application in public health, private industry and research environments, we can widen your knowledge to give you more varied career options.
