Course summary

This programme examines nutrition at all stages of life and associated problems including obesity, disease-related malnutrition and eating disorders. These incidences arise from several causes and have worldwide impact. UCL is a global leader in research on nutrition and obesity, child health, epidemiology and the psychology of disordered eating.

Degree benefits

  • You will gain a thorough grounding in nutrition science and the way it relates to personal diet, lifestyle and modern patterns of disease.

  • You will develop a holistic approach to obesity and malnutrition in the modern world, combining biomedical and societal approaches.

  • The knowledge and skills gained on this programme will enable you to engage with healthcare professionals and nutritional scientists in whatever sphere you choose to work in after graduating.

  • UCL is a world leader in biomedical research, offering a large variety of expert teaching and a wide range of outstanding research opportunities.

Your learning

Students will be expected to read and study before each teaching session as flipped teaching will be used. Most teaching sessions in the first year will be problem-based or in small groups. In the second and third years there will be a blend of tutorials, lectures and practical sessions. A co-ordinated programme-wide assessment will be used to blend formative and summative assessments. Dissertations will be assessed based on final-year projects.

Assessment

Formative and summative assessment methods include: online and written examinations (some of which are multiple-choice or short-answer question format); coursework; poster presentations; oral presentations; practical skills assessments.

Careers

The BSc is a science degree that integrates nutrition science with anatomy, cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, biochemistry, immunology and infection, neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology and pathology. It differs from most nutrition degrees in that the first year provides a strong foundation in human biology and clinical medicine.

Graduates will develop their capacities for independent thought and writing, as well as learn how to manage their study time efficiently whilst working effectively in groups on advanced topics of concern to society at large. We encourage entrepreneurship through modules on supervision, idea protection and marketing.
