Course summary

On BSc Nutrition with Food Consumer Sciences with Professional Training you will learn about nutrition and the psychology behind food choice and further your professional skills with a year-long training placement.

Consumers are growing increasingly aware of the effects that diet can have on health, and nutritionists play an important role in ensuring that the information available to them is scientifically sound. They help to ensure that food products are nutritionally beneficial and analyse consumer responses to them.

Our course blends nutritional sciences with training in the psychological aspects of cognition and consumer choices. The Department has strong links with industry, and you can gain valuable professional experience through a year-long paid training placement. If you are interested in working at the interface between companies, health professionals, policymakers and consumers, then this is the degree for you.

The University of Reading is a world authority on human nutrition, food chemistry, chemical engineering, microbiology and food law. Our staff are actively engaged in world-class research and will tailor their teaching to reflect changing trends and emerging technologies within the sector.

Career

Food is Europe's largest and most buoyant industry, and nutritionists work at the forefront of product development, packaging design and the communication of health messages to consumers.

Our graduates embark on careers within the food industry or a related sector, working for companies such as PepsiCo, Nestlé, Marks & Spencer, Mars, Unilever and McCormick. You may decide to take your transferable skills into other areas, such as teaching, accountancy or environmental health. Our degrees are also a stepping stone to MSc or PhD study.
