What you will study

You’ll investigate the evidence-based links between diet, health and disease, supported by a full appreciation for the nutritional mechanisms involved. You’ll develop your knowledge and scientific research skills to an advanced level, preparing you for a career in nutritional sciences.

You’ll study topics, including the fundamentals of human nutrition, international and public health nutrition, metabolic nutrition, and sports and exercise nutrition.

You’ll also complete a research dissertation that will allow you to carry out experiments and projects on important topics in the field. We’ll match your interests with the expertise of our researchers, ensuring you get the best support.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University. Our graduates have lifetime access to Surrey Pathfinder, our online portal for appointment and events bookings, jobs, placements and interactive development tools.

This course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN). This means you’ll be eligible to apply for direct entry into the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists to work as an associate nutritionist (ANutr) on successful completion of your studies. Once you’ve gained three years of post-degree professional experience, you’ll be eligible to apply for registered nutritionist status (RNutr). ANutr and RNutr nutritionists are the only evidence-based nutritionists recognised by Public Health England and the Department of Health.
