Masters advice - public health nutrition

User: wws1294 - 09 September 2016 12:41

Hi everyone,

I'm set to start a masters this year in public health nutrition and wanted to ask if anyone here has any advice on how to perform well? I'm hoping to aim for a high pass/distinction (my course doesn't offer merit grades) but am well aware that a masters is very intense workload wise and is far more difficult than undergraduate. I hope to pursue a career in research in the future.

Thanks for reading

Is it taught or research? My taught masters was very similar to undergrad, in terms of both workload and difficulty.

It's a taught masters. I have a background in life sciences so I'm hoping that I can grasp the biochemistry/physiology aspects relatively easily. I think my biggest concern is learning how to write for social sciences in addition to learning new topics such as health policy etc. May I ask what you did at undergrad and masters? Thanks for replying

Biological Sciences for BSc, Genetics for MSc and Molecular Biology PhD.

Ok, so you may have a bit of a learning curve as you're switching topics slightly. My masters was relatively similar topic area so was an easier transition.

I bet you'll be fine though. Good luck!
