Months of entry
This MSc focuses on the problems of over- and under-nutrition, which apply to most developed nations as well as those undergoing rapid transformation. The programme offers specialised training in the clinical and scientific basis of malnutrition and obesity, and therapeutic approaches to correcting this in the hospital, community and educational setting.
UCL delivers a high proportion of nutrition teaching to medical undergraduates because many UCL staff engage in research with a nutritional dimension.
As part of the internationally renowned UCL Division of Medicine (supported by the Institute of Liver and Digestive Health), we link with clinical services at University College London Hospitals (UCLH) and the Royal Free Hospital. Students benefit from the expertise of the many clinicians and scientists who teach on this MSc.
UCL has a rich and varied research environment. Students can choose projects, which will develop research skills in clinical and public health settings with supervisors from across UCL, the London community or elsewhere.
