Diet and nutrition are vital to the prosperity to the health and wellbeing of the population, and qualified nutritionists are in demand. Explore the chemistry of food, learn about human nutrition and develop practical skills in our SuperLabs. Open up career opportunities in food science, public health and clinical nutrition.
Food science and public health nutrition are fascinating subjects which you’ll explore in depth. Your all-round knowledge and understanding will encompass human nutrition, public health and lifestyle, food science, perspectives of clinical nutrition, and food policy and commercial responses. From this, you'll build on your underpinning scientific knowledge of anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, cellular and molecular medicine. Meanwhile, you'll also develop practical laboratory and clinical skills, and become confident in knowing how to initiate and evaluate research programmes.
When you graduate, you'll have a solid grasp of the factors which influence public health nutrition, from the environment and family, to general culture and the availability of food. Most importantly, you'll have the analytical, scientific and problem-solving skills that are so highly regarded in the food and healthcare sectors - and, indeed, all public and private sector organisations.
Employability is built into this course; you’ll graduate with a professional portfolio, the knowledge, leadership, scientific and communication skills you’ll need to excel at interview.
Year one, core modules:
Principles of Human Nutrition, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Scientific Communication and Professional Skills, Human Anatomy and Physiology, Principles of Metabolism, Principles of Biomedical Science
Year two, core modules:
Nutrition and Health, Essential Physiological Biochemistry, Research Methods, Principles of Food Science, Work Based Learning and Professional Skills
Year three, core modules:
Communication and Leadership in Applied Nutritional Science, Applied Food Science, Perspectives in Clinical Nutrition, Public Health Nutrition and Lifestyle, Undergraduate Major Project
We'll make sure you're progressing in a number of ways, including multiple choice tests, practical exams, reflective essays, oral and poster presentations, scientific report writing and independent project work. In the first year of this degree, one-to-one tutor will help you acquire a solid understanding of all the relevant subject matter. In years 2 and 3, assessment will focus on helping you develop from someone who consumes knowledge, to someone who generates it and is able to think independently.
This is a three year programme
Please note that you will need to complete all of the above core modules. This course does not have any optional modules. Modules are subject to change and availability.
