This Human Nutrition (Hons)  course at London Metropolitan University  addresses how diet, lifestyle and physical activity contribute to health, wellbeing and the prevention of major modifiable diseases. While the UK and most of the developed world are experiencing the longest lifespans of their populations, they’re also experiencing near epidemic levels of chronic non-communicable diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and cancers. Diet and lifestyle are key modifiable factors that drive these diseases.

Previous graduates have gone on to work at organisations such as Nestlé Health Science, the NHS, The Nutrition Society, the World Obesity Federation. Others do consulting and contract work as nutritionists.

This course is also excellent preparation for further research or study.
