The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a fragile global food system. You may be interested in empowering healthy communities. You may want to be part of building a sustainable global food system. We'll prepare you to take on these challenges in the post-pandemic world. On our accredited course:
- you'll use the latest research to understand global nutrition challenges
- you'll combine nutritional science with practical techniques, and physiology
- you'll study the psychology behind food choice and behaviour
- Industry placement - you can add a year in industry between years two and three
- Study abroad - options include our Malaysia campus, Australia, Canada, or Europe
- Computer Science year - use algorithms to analyse complex data and apply this to your course
In the first year, you will learn the basic principles of nutritional science, by looking at the human body and the foods we eat. This covers the composition of food, the nutrients they contain and how the body uses them. You'll explore the global food system and how the food eaten by animals impacts on food production. In the second year, you will study evidence-based nutrition. This will require you to use the latest research to understand global nutrition challenges and investigate how hormones affect what we eat, and when. You'll develop skills necessary to practice nutrition in professional modules taught by an experienced practitioner nutritionist, and learn how to determine nutritional needs through anthropometric assessment. In the third year, you will apply your knowledge to topical fields, to prepare you for professional practice. You’ll study molecular nutrition, public health and sustainability. To prepare you to work with clients, you'll be trained in nutritional psychology and dietary behaviour change. You will develop professional research skills on your dissertation. Expert researchers will work with you one-to-one on a project of your interest.
