Course summary This Association for Nutrition accredited course provides the knowledge, skills and experience you’ll need to improve individuals’ health, wellbeing and performance – and more broadly, to benefit society and the planet. You’ll develop and reflect on the professional skills you’ll need to work in the nutrition sector. This course is suitable if you don't meet the entry requirements for our BSc Human Nutrition and Health course, or if you just want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. This varied and intellectually stimulating course allows you to bring theoretical studies to life. You’ll reinforce your understanding through practicals, consultancy projects and applied learning activities, working alongside external partners ranging from schools to voluntary sector organisations. Our award-winning teachers have experience working in public health, sports and exercise nutrition, and food consumption behaviours. They’re actively involved in applied and impactful research – you’ll get to understand the latest trends in human nutrition and health and apply your knowledge to live projects in collaboration with external partners. In each year of study you’ll have the opportunity to engage with live projects and professional work opportunities. You can apply to access placements, volunteering opportunities and work experience through our relationships with external partners – such as schools, councils, sport clubs and food manufacturers. Applied learning - Work placements You’ll have the opportunity to undertake a year-long work placement in between your second and third years. This gives you relevant sector experience to prepare you for your future career – and allows you to graduate with an Applied Professional Diploma to add to your CV. Live projects Live projects are embedded within every level of your course – culminating in a final-year consultancy project with an external partner. Here you’ll get to use all the skills, knowledge and experience you’ve gained throughout the course. For example, previous students have worked on the development and nutritional analysis of a seasonal menu for a local dementia friendly café, and healthy eating classroom education sessions in local primary schools. Others have created cook and eat sessions for a local scouts group and developed a cooking resource pack for young adults with learning difficulties. Networking opportunities Graduates are invited regularly to come and meet our current students. Here you can get a critical insight of different career options while starting to build your own professional network. You’ll also benefit from our professional body memberships – which give you access to professionals in the sector as well as opportunities to interact with students from other institutions. Competitions We’ll encourage you to submit your work to conferences and for relevant awards. Previous students have been recognised externally for the high standard of their work, including one of our graduates who achieved the prestigious Food and Drink Federation Registered Nutritionist / Dietitian of the Year.
