Public and media interest in what we eat has never been greater. Emerging as one of the most popular sciences, human nutrition integrates knowledge from diverse areas of science to present a unified view of this dynamic discipline and its applications. You will examine how nutrients and eating patterns impact on health and well-being, and the role of diet in both health and disease.
For the Human Nutrition (Honours) course offered at the University of Westminster we have well-equipped laboratories in all bioscience disciplines including a suite of biochemical test facilities for nutritional analysis, whole-body metabolism and determination of body composition. A lively research culture is reflected in current studies into metabolic features underlying obesity and diabetes mellitus type 2, nutritional intervention in over- and under-nourished populations, chronic disease nutritional epidemiology, and exercise and nutritional interventions for metabolic health.
You will study modules which cover the relevant aspects of human nutrition, physiology, public health, biochemistry and psychology.
The course will equip you with the skills needed for a career as a nutrition adviser or consultant in regulatory and organisational bodies, and in teaching and research, or to go on to postgraduate study.
This course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN) and graduates from this course are eligible to join the Register as an Associate Nutritionist. The AfN recognises the high standards of training offered on our accredited courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
