The strong links with local and international food and nutrition organisations provide potential work experience and career opportunities. The Nutrition (Hons) programme is offered by the Oxford Brookes University.
Regular nutrition seminars keep you up to date in the latest developments. And the Nutrition Society, our student-led group, organises relevant guest speakers and activities.
As more nutrition-related issues feature in the media, government initiatives stress the importance of improving our diet and fitness levels. This creates job opportunities for graduates who understand the science and other issues around food.
Some of our graduates pursue careers as nutritionists in hospital laboratories, health education, international aid and local authorities. Others go into product development in the food industry. You may also opt for teaching, research or further specialised training, in dietetics for example.
The variety of opportunities is illustrated by the careers of four recent graduates: a dietician at a London hospital, an aid worker for Médecins Sans Frontières, a product developer at an alcopops manufacturer, and a nutritionist working for Jamie Oliver.
This course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition.
