About

Is the UK going through an obesity epidemic? Why have obesity levels more than trebled in the last 30 years despite the health and wellbeing industries prospering? What can be done to promote fitness and balanced nutrition throughout the country?

The Fitness, Nutrition and Health (Hons) programme at Abertay University will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to develop solutions to meet these challenges head on, with teaching underpinned by research and practical work delivered in our state-of-the-art facilities.

This joint offering between the Schools of Social and Health Sciences and Science, Engineering and Technology draws on the core disciplines of physiology, psychology, biomechanics and nutrition, and provides built-in work placements designed to match your career interests.

Careers 

This bespoke programme allows you to study both nutrition and sports science, giving you an edge in the graduate job market. You'll be well equipped to work in a wide range of fitness and health professions, including roles such as an Active Schools Coordinator or in public health nutrition. 

The Fitness Nutrition and Health programme is aligned with the requirements of the Association for Nutrition (AfN), which means you can apply to become a Registered Associate Nutritionist (ANutr) upon graduation from this programme, and a Registered Nutritionist (RNutr) following approximately three years relevant professional experience.

  • If you're a student from England, Wales or Northern Ireland, you can apply to Student Finance Online Services for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees. The loan is not means tested.
