You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of how the body assimilates and uses nutrients, and you’ll fully appreciate how human nutrition impacts health and the development of disease. In your first year, you’ll study topics, including biochemistry, cell biology, food science, human nutrition and health, and physiology, ensuring you have a solid foundation upon which to build the rest of your degree.

In your third year, you’ll have the choice to specialise further in an area of personal interest, exploring topics like the analysis of foods and processing methods that meet UK and EU food legislation and guidelines, the biochemical transformations which occur during the processing, storage and preparation of foods, and the role heat processes have on the destruction of microorganisms. You’ll also complete a research project, bringing together all the practical, analytical, and presentation skills you’ve developed.
