Human Nutrition


Course Description

It is becoming increasingly apparent that nutrition plays a key role in both health and disease. This course aims to develop an understanding of the principles of nutrition and enables students to scientifically evaluate the links between diet, health and disease.

Why Study Human Nutrition with us?

As the MSc in Human Nutrition is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN), graduates of this course are entitled to direct entry to the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN). This allows graduates to use the letters ‘ANutr’ after their name.

The course will appeal to professionals within the food and nutrition industries as well as health professionals.

Our course will also be attractive to undergraduates with non-nutrition degrees who wish to move into the field of nutrition and those with nutrition-related degrees wishing further their studies to gain a postgraduate qualification.

What will I learn?

The modules will develop your underpinning scientific knowledge of nutrition as well as equipping you with the professional skills required for a career in nutrition. Modules will cover: principles of nutrition; human metabolism; nutrition in health and disease; sports nutrition; nutritional assessment; and research methods and data analysis. You will also develop your research skills during the Research Project phase of the course.

How will I be taught?

Each taught module involves attendance at a three-day intensive course (Wednesday to Friday, 9.15am to 5.00pm), followed by an eight-week period of campus- or home-based learning with interim tutorials.

How will I be assessed?

The course is assessed using a variety of assessment methods, including written examinations, essays, oral presentations and case studies.

After completing six taught modules, you will commence the Research Project.
