The BSc Nutritional Sciences is home to an innovative teaching and learning environment. The strength and depth of our research means you’ll not only be taught be internationally recognised researchers, but also be able to become actively involved in cutting-edge research during your studies. As a student on our BSc Nutrition course, you’ll learn about food and the nutrients it contains, how the body uses them and how they relate to health and disease. You will gain an in-depth understanding as to how the body assimilates and utilises nutrients in the body. Building on a sound evidence base, you will fully appreciate how human nutrition impacts on health and development of disease. This course is designed for those who wish to pursue a commercial, public health or research-orientated career, and it will give you the core skills and competencies required from a modern nutritionist. Our BSc Nutrition course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition, and after completing your course you will be eligible for the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN). Our nutrition graduates have attractive career prospects in the food industry and health service, as well as in research, education and the media.
