Course summary

Nutrition affects everyone in the world every day. What and how we eat is vital to individual and community health and it is an engaging and rewarding subject to study. You will learn the academic principles behind food and gain practical skills in our advanced laboratories. You will also learn how to think on a larger scale. What are the social, political, cultural and environmental factors affecting what we eat? How can nutritionists use evidence to support behaviour change at an individual, community and population level? What are the most current issues in the field of nutrition? If we are what we eat, then nutrition can tell us a lot about who we are, how we live and how we can improve the health of society. As a science it looks at how food affects the functioning of the living organism. It includes the study of food composition, how it is digested and absorbed, the production of energy, elimination of wastes and all the syntheses that are essential for growth, maintenance and reproduction across the life cycle
