Diet and Nutrition is a multi-million-pound industry and continually in the media. Chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancers and diabetes kill more than 36 million people each year. An unhealthy diet is known to be a major risk factor in the cause of many of these diseases.
All the modules that you'll study have a specific nutrition focus. Biochemistry, Physiology and Public Health are all nutrition-orientated with related industry, lifestyle and case study examples provided throughout your learning.
In your final year, you will have the opportunity to apply your nutritional knowledge in a number of fields such as sports nutrition or clinical nutrition.
The continued and growing interest in the health agenda means there are many career opportunities for good graduates of nutrition. There are roles in the public sector including local and national government in areas such as policy development and implementation and health promotion; in the private sector in the food industry, marketing, public relations and the media.
Previous graduates have taken up roles in government and non-governmental organisations. Graduates have engaged in the health agenda, nutritional research, the media, elite sports teams and the food industry.
