Summary

Improve human health and wellbeing by studying a BSc Nutrition and Health , where you will gain insight into the science behind what we eat.

أهداف البرنامج

You will explore how good nutrition enhances wellbeing, and can help manage or prevent disease. You will also look at the latest science to analyse the link between food and health, and how that can be applied to individuals, the public, and groups such as athletes and older adults. 

The degree is accredited by the Association for Nutrition, so when you graduate you can become a Registered Associate Nutritionist and help others lead healthy lives. 

You will gain the skills to tackle topical issues and understand the effects of food and nutrition on health – an area of increasing public and clinical interest. 

Throughout your time with us, you will be supported in a welcoming and diverse community of staff and students, on a beautiful parkland campus. You will have access to our state-of-the art facilities and excellent laboratories, including our food lab, with sensory analysis tasting booths, and specialist laboratories for physiology, microbiology and computing. 

We offer innovative modules such as Advances in Nutrition and Health, where you will explore recent developments and innovations in the field of nutrition, including the role of ‘omics’ technology, interactions between diet, genes and disease, and the role of various nutrients. Other interesting modules include Nutrition of Population Groups, which explores how different stages of life can determine nutritional status and requirements, and Food Science, where you will gain insight into the science behind food production, quality and safety.
