With health issues such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and malnutrition frequently in world news, graduates with a scientific understanding of nutrition are in high demand.  

Course description

This course details the science behind the nutritional requirements of humans from pre-conception to old age. It investigates how we can best eat a balanced diet as well as emphasising the specific problems of international nutrition and their global implications.

Whether you're looking to enhance your career prospects or planning to return to work after a career break, we offer a flexible part-time study programme which enables you to study around work or family commitments. Since a third of our students choose to study part-time, you'll benefit from the range of backgrounds and experiences of fellow students.

Choose a level of study that suits you - MSc (180 credits), PGDip (120 credits) or PGCert (60 credits) or simply select from our wide range of individual modules - ideal as refresher training or to suit employers looking to provide staff development opportunities in specialist areas.  

Example module

Nutrition, Physical Activity and Health examines the relationships between nutrition, physical activity and health and disease in humans. In particular, the influence of diet and physical activity on cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and obesity will be considered along with counselling and goal-setting for diet, nutrition and exercise.
