Course content

The proportion of adults living in the UK categorised as obese continues to rise...

Current data from The Health Survey for England suggests that a quarter of adults are obese, predisposing them to greater risk of diabetes, cancer and coronary heart disease.

In an attempt to reduce levels of obesity and other diet related health problems numerous government initiatives have been launched such as Healthy Lives, Healthy People; the National Child Measurement Programme; the Public Health Responsibility Deal and the Change4Life campaign, with the aim of preventing people from becoming overweight by encouraging them to eat healthily and move more.

Increased awareness of the importance of a healthy diet and the association between diet and health at all stages of life has led to a growth of public interest in the subject of nutrition.

The course has been designed to enable you to continue working along side your studies. You will only attend St Mary’s University for one day a week (plus two intensive weeks).

The programme has been accredited by The AfN (AC282). This accreditation allows successful MSc students direct entry to the UK Voluntary Register for Nutritionists (UKVRN) as an Associate Nutritionist.
