Course summary

Programme description

Our PhD/MPhil Nutrition programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Nutrition.

Nutrition is defined as the intake of food, considered in relation to the body's dietary needs.

It has major implications for health and function, and in the genesis or prevention of many diseases occurring across the life course.

We recognise this as a cross-cutting domain, with relevant research activities taking place in many of our specialist research divisions.

These projects range from basic bioscience and mechanistic research through to many aspects of diet and health, including obesity.

There are also particular opportunities in clinical nutrition and nutritional support, including intestinal failure.

Teaching and learning

PhD/MPhil programmes are based on individual research projects that last three to four years (PhD) or one year (MPhil), working with a specific Primary Supervisor and Co-Supervisor(s).

Applicants are specifically matched with a Primary Supervisor and individual project based on their research interests and background.

International applicants interested in this research area can also consider the our PhD programme with integrated teaching certificate .

This unique programme will enable you to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning, whilst also carrying out independent research on your chosen project.

Career opportunities

Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
