Nutritional Science

The importance of good nutrition in ensuring a healthy, disease-free human life is currently very high in the public and scientific agendas.Throughout the Nutritional Science Masters degree, we aim to guide you to an in-depth understanding of the broad discipline of Nutritional Science through the study of its different aspects both at theoretical and practical levels. In particular our MSc curriculum covers foundation and advanced human nutrition, nutrient analysis, food policy, statistics and general research skills as well as applied and professional nutritional skills. We place great emphasis on using diverse teaching media and approaches to develop both your technical skills and abilities for effective teamwork and communication. The programme is specifically designed to allow you to apply the scientific knowledge from your first degree to develop your understanding of the science underpinning nutritional principles in relation to human health. MSc graduates can become members of the Nutrition Society and associate nutritionists in the Association for Nutrition. The programme will enhance your career opportunities in the nutrition, food and health industries, or prepare you for further academic research.
