Course summary

Course Overview

This BSc (Hons) Nutrition degree at Cardiff Met is accredited by the Association for Nutrition.

We are proud to be the only Nutrition degree course in Wales to be 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 year​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.

Learning & Teaching

The course is taught by experienced Registered Nutritionists, Dietitians and Sports and Exercise Nutritionists who have previously worked in primary and secondary NHS care, public health, industry, overseas development and with sports teams and elite athletes. They use these experiences to bring real-life examples to their teaching with plenty of opportunities for case studies and practical tutorial tasks.

We make full use of our consumer kitchen facilities where students regularly work in pairs to produce a days menu for a person with specific dietary, social and health needs. This enables students to gain values skills in meal planning and portion size estimates.

Anthropometry and exercise physiology is taught using the sports physiology laboratories to enable students to gain valuable skills in core practical skills in a professional environment.

Employability & Careers

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.

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.
