Understanding the link between foods, diets, dietary patterns, nutrients, and physical health is paramount in the current environment. And that’s where nutritionists can help.
By taking the Nutritional Sciences (Hons) course from Manchester Metropolitan University you’ll look at the issues that make the headlines and the topics that touch our everyday lives. Whilst our relationship with food has never had a higher profile in the public sphere, the food industry is constantly adapting to new consumer trends and developments.
You won’t simply learn the theory behind nutrition, you’ll explore how it works through practical sessions.
We have chemistry and microbiology laboratories, a taste panel suite, a product development kitchen, a bakery and food quality testing equipment. We also have the capability to produce and develop new food products, test and analyse them, taking them through to the packaging and labelling stage.
This creates a holistic approach to our teaching and means you gain real-life experience whilst studying with us.
Our nutritional sciences degree also provides the option of spending an extra year working in a partner organisation on placement.
Both of our nutrition courses are accredited by the Association for Nutrition. When you graduate, you’ll have the right to apply for direct entry at Associate level to the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists.
Our nutrition courses help to prepare you for a variety of opportunities within the field of food and nutrition, from public health and product development to working with sports teams. Some of our current students have gained work experience with Nestle and Cooperative Food.
You have the option to complete a placement during Year 3 if you choose the four-year sandwich degree route. The day-to-day demands of an industry placement are challenging and inspirational, and the experience is invaluable for both your final year of study and your employment prospects. It gives you an advantage when you begin looking for your first job upon graduating.
