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

All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.
Students are assessed through a combination of course work, exams and practical assessment where relevant. Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
