MSc Nutrition and Food Sciences is targeted at students who have studied the core disciplines of nutrition and food science related to health and wellness. This course is highly relevant as there is a need for high quality postgraduate Nutritional and Food Scientists that will serve the North West and the current epidemic of nutrition-related health problems (Obesity, Cardiovascular Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, and Cancer).
