Course content

Our Master’s course will provide advanced-level education and training for those with, or seeking, roles in obesity prevention, weight management or health promotion.

Overweight and obesity are directly and indirectly linked to health and disease. Prevelance is increasing globally, particularly in western industrialised countries such as the UK, but also in countries undergoing rapid urbanisation or 'westernisation'.
Our Master's course will provide advanced-level education and training for those with, or seeking, roles in obesity prevention, weight management or health promotion.

This course was the first of its type to run in UK and Ireland, and is delivered by a team of experienced academics, GPs, hospital doctors, surgeons, dietitians, nutritionists, exercise specialists and psychologists. The specialist input from field experts and academics keeps the course fresh and up to date to cater for the needs of professionals working in this area. (see our Timetable 2017/18)

While this is a focused professional development course aimed at healthcare professionals from around the world, it is also suitable for newly qualified graduates aspiring to work in this high-profile area.
