Food & Nutritional Sciences and Psychology at Liverpool Hope University - UCAS

Course summary

Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally. Food & Nutritional Sciences Knowledge of food and nutritional science is becoming ever more vital, particularly given the increasing awareness of foods role in important issues such as health and disease and environmental sustainability. Consequently, individuals with expertise in these areas will play a key role in a diverse and wide range of professions, such as developing the safe, sustainable, and healthy foods of the future, creating public health nutrition strategies, and designing and implementing evidence-based nutritional guidelines. Our Food & Nutritional Sciences degree is focused on developing a set of practical, professional, and intellectual skills which are needed to develop a successful career in various roles across the commercial food sector and public health, as well as preparation for further study, working as a nutritionist, or pursuing a professional career in dietetics. The course curriculum is broad yet deep and draws from the food, nutrition, and health sciences, as well as the social and behavioural sciences. There is also emphasis on elements including food product development and the food supply chain, health and wellbeing, sustainability, and the development of professional skills. You will be taught in our state-of-the-art Health Science building, which features specialist laboratories and equipment dedicated to the study of food, nutrition, and health. Those who decide to study for the Single Hons course will also be eligible for direct registration as a Registered Associate Nutritionist (ANutr) with the Association for Nutrition (AfN). You will learn from a highly committed team of research-active UK Registered Nutritionists (supported with additional expertise in food science and technology, the biological sciences, and public health). Our staff have a wide range of practical experience and are incredibly enthusiastic about both the academic subject and the quality of your student experience. Psychology Psychology is the study of people, with a particular focus on individuals. Knowledge and skills cultivated within the discipline enable practitioners to intervene at personal, inter personal and systemic levels in order to enable people to live better lives. Choice of programmes allows students to study a course that reflects their prior interests, lived experience, or future goals. Ethical practice and working within a shared set of values is also important to us; our University is deeply committed to serving the common good. We see Psychology as a discipline with the capacity, and responsibility, to make a positive contribution to how people live in everyday life. In our teaching of Psychology, we strive to enable our students to grow into constructive citizens who are curious about people, and motivated to make a positive difference to the lives of others. Beyond classroom learning, there are opportunities to enrich your chosen programme of study in a way that will help you in developing your psychological thinking. They include going on a placement, working as a research assistant in a laboratory, travelling to another country as part of Global Hope, or under the Erasmus study abroad scheme.
