Course summary

OVERVIEW

Through this one-year course, you’ll develop the skills and knowledge to work as a nutritionist in both the health and food sectors.

You’ll study the theory behind nutritional sciences, exploring topics from food guidelines to biochemistry to the distribution and control of disease. You’ll also have sessions in our laboratories where you’ll complete practical evaluations.

During practical sessions, we’ll help you to understand the assessments you might conduct as a nutritionist. We use patient case studies, so you might complete a nutritional assessment for a patient with Crohn’s disease or Diabetes, or perhaps analyse a person’s diet.

Many of our students complete public health nutrition-based projects for their dissertations, focusing on areas they’re hoping to develop a career in. Recent topics include how diet and calorie intake might affect the efficacy of chemotherapy treatment and exercise barriers for young women.

Our MSc Human Nutrition course is an Association for Nutrition (AfN) accredited course. This means that when you graduate, you're eligible to apply for direct entry to the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN) Register as a Registered Associate Nutritionist (ANutr).

CAREER PROSPECTS

From nutrition-related roles within government organisations to working in the media to food industry research and development, there are a variety of career paths you could take as a nutritionist.

You might work in a health setting (such as a hospital) or perhaps set up a consultancy business as a nutritionist, or develop your career within research or teaching nutrition.

Students can also exit with PGDip Award.
