This course is the only evidence-based MSc Nutritional Medicine programme in Europe and uses the latest research to investigate the impact that nutrition has on health, disease and ageing. Designed for those with a role in nutrition and health practice, such as general practitioners, gastroenterologists, dietitians, pharmacists, and food scientists, you’ll learn about nutritionally related aspects of health and disease, in order to inform patients and industry.
You’ll gain a deep understanding of the complex relationships between nutrition and health, and the range and potential of nutritional management to postpone or treat disease. You’ll develop a critical and scholarly approach to theory, practice, literature and research findings.
You’ll study topics, including antioxidants, diet and behaviour, epidemiology, lipids, nutrition and exercise for health and sports performance, nutritional aspects of pregnancy, the nervous system and phytoprotectants.
You’ll also complete a research dissertation that will allow you to carry out experiments and projects on important topics in the field. We’ll match your interests with the expertise of our researchers, ensuring you get the best support.
