Course summary

Health and nutrition is an area of national concern. The resources of the Health Service in contemporary Britain are increasingly being directed at preventative health care and at strategies which educate, inform and guide behaviour in certain health related issues. You will develop a sound scientific underpinning knowledge, but also gain skills in health care and specifically in recognising and planning for nutritional related health issues. It encompasses a wide range of situations and scenarios, developing the people skills as well as the knowledge required to work with individuals. It also involves broader roles, such as working with schools and groups, using persuasive and informational techniques and exploring the cultural and social barriers which inhibit sensible nutritional behaviours.The combination of practical and academic skills you will gain from the course will make you the ideal candidate for a wide range of jobs in the field of Health and Nutrition Professional placement will increase your skills and make you more attractive to employers. It is particularly important if you want to work in Health Promotion, or if you are considering teaching. Take advantage of work placements offered on the course to build up your skills and knowledge. Students can go on to work within the National Health Service, Health Promotion, The Education Sector and Leisure Industry.Please note that nutritionists do not give dietary advice to individual patients or work directly with patients without supervision.
