Course Summary

This degree has been accredited by the Association for Nutrition professional body. This means graduates are eligible for direct entry to become Associate Nutritionists and use the letters AssocNutr after their name. Then after a few years​s of relevant employment can become full Registered Nutritionist using the letters RNutr after their name. This prestigious quality marker enables graduates to be recognised as professionally trained and regulated Nutritionists. Nutritionists work in health improvement, with groups or communities to promote health, well being and reduce inequalities. The role might involve working with low income groups, pregnant women or in communities requiring specific health interventions related to nutrition. Our graduates have gone onto deliver nutrition interventions in public health teams and for local councils. Others have used their skills of nutritional analysis to improve the provision of school meals.

Other career opportunities are within NHS Trusts, sports nutrition, health promotion or Government Departments. Nutritionists may also work with charities or in the food industry, either with manufacturers or retailers. The programme has been devised to prepare graduates to join the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register. There are also international opportunities for appropriately qualified nutritionists in emergency relief or development projects in low-income countries. Our graduates have used their skills in New Product Development to secure employment in the food industry while others have joined food-related graduate training schemes. Every year some progress into post-graduate study either in research, teacher training or to train to become an NHS Dietitian.
