Nutrition, Physical Activity and Public Health

This programme focuses on the promotion and maintenance of diet- and physical 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 the need for specialisation in the three intertwined disciplines of nutrition, physical activity and public health, which differentiates it from MSc courses in public health. As such, it will contribute substantially towards higher-level qualifications in this emerging area, with real world applicability. There is now global demand for multi-skilled 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 will also help you develop important skills in designing and evaluating research and community interventions that promote dietary and physical activity behaviour change leading to improved health. We welcome applications from qualified dieticians, physical activity and fitness specialists and other health professionals (such as nurses, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, physical trainers and occupational therapists) who are looking to develop in the important area of nutrition- and physical activity-related public health. It is also suitable for newly qualified graduates from a wide range of disciplines planning to specialise in these three disciplines and working towards 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 (see the Times Higher Education analysis of REF 2014). In addition, 100 per cent of its research impact was judged to be of the highest level.
