Nutrition, Physical Activity and Public Health

This programme focuses on the promotion and maintenance of diet- and activity-related public health and wellbeing. There is a clear consensus that new professional and scientific needs are emerging in this field. This programme is one of the first to recognise this need and as such will contribute substantially towards higher-level qualifications in this emerging area. There is now considerable demand for multiskilled individuals with knowledge and understanding of research, policy and practice in both nutrition and physical activity. This programme equips you with such skills, as well as providing unique insight into the fascinating interactions between physical activity, nutrition and health by blending epidemiology, psychology and policy-relevant research. The programme is specifically designed for qualified dieticians, physical activity specialists and other health professionals (such as nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists) who are looking to develop in the important area of nutrition-related and physical activity-related public health. It is also suitable for newly-qualified graduates planning a career in this area. The latest Research Excellence Framework rated the Centre for Exercise, Nutrition and Health Sciences as the leading UK centre of research excellence within the field of physical activity, nutrition and health research. In addition, 100 per cent of its research impact was judged to be of the highest level. Take a look at these videos to find out more, including interviews with current students.

Course modules

All units are compulsory and there are no formal examinations. Work is assessed through written assignments, presentations, written reports or research proposals. During the final term, you will complete an original research investigation and dissertation (10,000-15,000 words) on an approved public health-based topic, which will incorporate nutrition or physical activity or a combination of the two. Part-time students will be given guidance about which units to complete in each year of study.
