Improve human health and their well-being by studying a Nutrition and Health BSc at Roehampton, where you will gain insight into the science behind what we eat.

In this rewarding Nutrition and Health degree, you will learn about how good nutrition enhances well-being and can help manage or prevent disease. This programme is accredited by the Association for Nutrition, so when you graduate you can become a Registered Associate Nutritionist and help others lead healthy lives.

Through the latest scientific principles in nutrition, this popular degree analyses the connection between food and health, and how this can be applied to individuals, the public and specific groups such as athletes and older adults. You will gain the skills to tackle topical issues and understand the effects of food and nutrition on health – an area of increasing public and clinical interest.

Throughout your time at Roehampton, you’ll be supported in a welcoming and diverse community of staff and students in high-quality facilities on a beautiful parkland campus. You will have access to our state-of-the art facilities and excellent laboratories including a food lab complete with sensory analysis tasting booths and specialist laboratories for physiology, microbiology and computing.

We offer innovative modules such as ‘Advances in Nutrition’ that explores recent developments and innovations in the field of Nutrition including the role of ‘omics’ technology, interactions between diet, genes and disease and the role of various nutrients. Other examples include ‘Nutrition through the Lifespan’ which explores how different stages of life can determine nutritional status and requirements, or ‘Food Science’ which focuses on the science behind food production, food quality, and food safety.
