Course content

The programme aims to develop an understanding of the principles of human nutrition and enable students to scientifically evaluate the links between diet, health and disease.

As the MSc in Human Nutrition is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN), graduates of this course are entitled to direct entry to the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN). This allows graduates to use the letters "ANutr" after their name.

The programme will be attractive to undergraduates with non-nutrition degrees who wish to move into the field of nutrition and those with nutrition related degrees wishing further their studies to gain a postgraduate qualification.
