Explore nutrition, health and disease with our extended human nutrition degree. An extra year will prepare you for degree-level study and you’ll need lower entry points than for our three-year course. Our extended human nutrition degree provides the scientific skills and knowledge you'll need to understand the links between nutrition, health and disease. You'll also develop communication skills so you can explain to others the significance of diet and nutrition and improve their health. Before studying the same modules offered on our three-year course, you'll start your degree with a foundation year. This will give you skills needed for learning at degree level. Potential careers for our human nutrition graduates include healthcare, teaching, academia, research, the food industry and sport and exercise nutrition. This course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition. What you should know about this course
