Human Nutrition (Public Health and Sports)

The course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition, and provides opportunities to train as public health or sports nutritionists for a range of sectors. Our staff are active practitioners and researchers in areas including dietary survey methodology, community interventions, and body composition and sports performance. This course builds on experience gained from your undergraduate degree and provides options to specialise in public health nutrition or sports nutrition. In particular the aims are to offer a programme of advanced study and training, to advance practical experience and develop a critical and reflective approach to research and practice in nutrition, and to enable you to become effective learners and practitioners by developing cross-functional skills. After three years of relevant experience, associate nutritionists can become registered nutritionists. You can apply under one of five specialisms from public health, sports and exercise, nutrition science, animal and food.
