Subject

Nutrition

Every country in the world is struggling with a nutrition problem of some kind whether from malnutrition, obesity or a combination of these factors.

As a topic, our food is rarely out of the media and we are constantly being encouraged to think more about diet and its impact on our health and the wider environment. Our Nutrition degree will help you become part of the solution to these issues.

Your studies will centre on the application of current knowledge about human nutrition. You will explore nutrition, physiology and exercise alongside public health, food consumer behaviour and aspects of food-related diseases.

Option modules enable you to tailor your learning and the course offers specialist pathways in public health and sport and exercise.

Field trips, visiting industry speakers and placements help you to put your learning into action.

This is the subject you need to study if you want to become a dietician — an important job in the country’s healthcare sector, and the single most common job for nutrition graduates. We don’t have many graduates in nutrition every year and with the population becoming more aware of health and well-being and with many medical needs being addressed by the application of specific diets, this is likely to be an area of increasing demand in the future.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
