Course content

This programme focuses on the promotion and maintenance of diet and activity-related public health and wellbeing. There is a clear consensus that new professional and scientific needs are emerging in this field. This programme is one of the first to recognise this need and as such will contribute substantially towards higher level qualifications in this emerging area.

There is now considerable demand for multi-skilled individuals with knowledge and understanding of research, policy and practice in both nutrition and physical activity. This programme equips you with such skills, as well as providing unique insight into the fascinating interactions between physical activity, nutrition and health through blending epidemiology, psychology and policy-relevant research.

The programme is specifically designed for qualified dieticians, physical activity specialists, and other health professionals such as nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists who want to advance in the important area of nutrition-related and physical activity-related public health. It is also suitable for newly-qualified graduates seeking to develop a career in this area.

The results of the latest Research Exercise Framework rate the Centre for Exercise, Nutrition and Health Sciences as the leading UK centre of research excellence within the field of physical activity, nutrition and health research. In addition, 100 per cent of its evidence research impact was judged to be of the highest level.
