This course of study offers graduates and experienced practitioners in food, nutrition and science and health related subjects the opportunity to move into research, health, and management positions in the food and nutrition sectors.
We aim to give you cutting edge and relevant practical experience in nutrition, health and nutritional product development, alongside exploring the global and local impacts of sustainable food, diet and nutrition. You will examine the evidence supporting the relationship between nutrition, health and lifestyle, the impact of social and corporate responsibilities on sustainable food production and consumption, and the impact on diet and health. The medical and physiological implications of under and over nutrition throughout the life-cycle are a key feature of the programme. You will also have the opportunity to learn how to analyse the factors influencing the food consumption behaviour of consumers. The course also provides you with the opportunity to meet, engage and network with numerous food and nutrition enterprises at a leading Food Symposium and Conference
