The Nutrition (Hons) programme of The University of Nottingham Malaysia will also specifically explore diet inrelation to diabetes, obesity and coronary heart disease, while developing an in-depth knowledge of physiology and nutritional biochemistry. This will enable you to use scientific evidence to understand the relationship between diet and health or disease, including molecular biology, nutritional biochemistry and personalised nutrition based on the genotype.
What we eat and how much we eat, has a profound effect on our health. In some parts of the world undernourishment is still a major and yet unresolved issue. However, in many other countries the population suffers from ill health due to overconsumption of inappropriate foods. The diet we consume will influence chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes and ageing.
During the second year, you have the opportunity to study at our UK campus for either one or two semesters. Not only does this opportunity broaden your outlook and contribute to your personal development, it allows you to witness at first hand the nutrition issues that predominate in the west. Our course also includes an optional industrial placement in the second year, which will enable you to gain valuable experience in a related industry, crucial for your career development and employment. In your final year, you will plan and carry out a year long research project under the guidance of one of our academic staff. The project allows you to gain an in-depth understanding of a food or nutrition-related topic, while developing a number of transferable skills. You will develop your ability to work independently, to use your initiative, manage your time effectively, collect and critically analyse data and to sharpen your writing and communication skills. These transferable skills are highly valued by employers and will help in your search for employment. This course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN) UK. After graduation youwill be eligible to join the Association of Nutritionists’ Register as an Associate and use the ANutr qualification.
A degree in nutrition can lead to a number of career choices. Graduates have gone on to practise nutrition within the food industry, specialist nutritional supplement companies, public health nutrition, education and journalism. The science base of this degree is a good springboard for higher degrees including MPhil and PhD.
