About the course

Nutrition is a dynamic discipline that is central to understanding the role of foods, nutrients and consumption behaviour in maintaining human health and preventing disease.

Nutritionists play a significant role in providing dietary recommendations at the individual level, as well as contributing to evidence-based guidelines and policy formulation and implementation at community and population level. As such, nutritionists are in demand – meaning there'll be an exciting range of career or research opportunities open to you when you graduate.

Student Profile

Molly Murton

Why did you decide to study a masters at the University of Leeds? Having never studied nutrition before, I chose Leeds for my Masters due to the quality of the course (including its accreditation) and breadth of modules offered which I felt matched my interests and would give me an excellent founding on many topics in nutrition.
