Nutritional science is a subject of growing importance in many aspects of healthcare, lifestyle and industry. This programme, established since 1994 and accredited by the Association of Nutrition (AfN), provides students with an expert evidence-based approach to Human Nutrition, integrating teaching on basic sciences, clinical practice and public health applications.

Why this programme

-Students explore how our choices of foods affect the biochemical and physiological functions of cells and organs, and how our diets influence physical, mental and social health.
-This MSc is unique in the UK in providing four different specialisation areas – Public Health Nutrition, Clinical Nutrition, Obesity & Weight Management and Sports & Exercise Nutrition.
-If you are passionate about nutrition and keen to learn through an in-depth, evidence based, critical approach and enthusiastic about specialising in a particular area - public health nutrition, clinical nutrition, obesity and weight management or sports and exercise nutrition, then this programme is for you.
-There is a long tradition of excellence in Nutrition at the University of Glasgow, with pioneering research by Cathcart, Paton and Boyd. More recently Durnin, Cockburn and Dunnigan, and current Glasgow academics continue to make important contributions in the field of Nutrition.
-This programme has a truly global reach, taught by international staff and external experts, offering great flexibility to suit individual student needs.
-A range of transferable skills are integrated and embedded into this programme, for example, critical review skills, which are highly sought after within the competitive job market. You will learn how to develop a substantial research proposal as a team, gaining valuable skills for future employment.
-After completing this programme you will have gained valuable understanding and a range of skills for interdisciplinary working and for interpreting nutrition research.
-Our staff are highly trained, enthusiastic and experienced. The staff and University environment are very supportive: feedback from past students emphasises the dedication, approachability and enthusiasm of the programme team.
-The MSc (Med Sci) Human Nutrition is accredited by the Association for Nutrition. All graduates will be eligible for direct entry to the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN) as an Associate Nutritionist (ANutr). It is expected that you will normally transition to full registration after three years, when you will also identify your area of specialism from the five options available. For more information, please see http://www.associationfornutrition.org/.
-You will have the opportunity to study at the recently refurbished Glasgow Royal Infirmary with its state of the art teaching facilities.

Programme structure

The programme provides a thorough grounding in the principles, practice and research of human nutrition and the opportunity to follow a successful career in the UK or overseas. You will have the knowledge and experience necessary for engaging in and contributing to current issues in the field of human nutrition. An additional research component allows the development of valuable skills for practising and interpreting nutrition research.

The teaching programme is given in the form of lectures, practical sessions, debates, case studies, team work tasks, self-directed learning, seminars and tutorials. Additional material and electronic resources such as quizzes, online chats and teaching videos are available on moodle, the University’s virtual learning environment, to support and enhance students’ learning experience.

The Faculty of Education's PPD programme can be used as part of a progression route to the University of Cambridge part-time Master's (MEd) or the EdD. The programme offers the opportunity to gain highly regarded qualifications which enable recently qualified or experienced practitioners, curriculum leaders and senior managers to update and upgrade their skills, advance their careers and support development of practice in schools.

Course detail

Groups of teachers from one or more schools may wish to work collaboratively on a development project. Those teachers who wish to write up their work in a way that addresses the criteria of the PPD awards may register for the programme and work with a supervisor to achieve a PPD award.

Please note that PPD students are members of the Faculty of Education with access to all Faculty services such as library membership and IT support. Successful completion of the PPD programme entitles students to a University of Cambridge award. Students do not though, have College membership, nor therefore pay a College fee. Use of some central University facilities may be restricted (for example sports clubs).

Who is the course designed for?

The programme offers academic study that is practice-focused and professionally relevant. It is aimed at professionals working with children and young people in schools and other settings. It attracts a large number of teachers but also attracts others who may not have QTS but who contribute to the education and development of young people.

Format

Participants work with a supervisor to design and undertake a small scale project aimed at researching or developing practice. Some opt to work with others in a small research community or development group and others opt to work more independently with a supervisor. Central to the programme is a belief in the importance of empowering professionals to link effectively theory, research and practice.

As part of the Faculty's commitment to ensuring that the PPD courses meet the demand that good practice should be 'evidence based' they include an introduction to research methods, designed to support PPD enquiry into classroom and school based topics.

The course is online, so no attendance is required, and you will have a supervisor to work with you on this aspect of your research. The course will be tailored to meet your research needs and the materials, which include video interviews with internationally renowned Cambridge researchers, are both accessible and comprehensive.

Assessment

Essay: 8,000 words

Students receive written comments on their assignments and informal feedback throughout the course (including through supervision).

Continuation

If you continue to the Faculty of Education's Master's programme, you will at that point be admitted to the central University, through the college system, as a full member of the University, with fees also going to a College.
