It is recognised that good nutrition and a healthy balanced diet are important to health. An in depth understanding of nutrition is inextricably linked to the foods consumed and underpinned by an understanding of the science behind food production, processing and safety. There is a need for high quality postgraduate Nutritional and Food Scientists that will serve the North West and the current epidemic of nutrition-related health problems (Obesity, Cardiovascular Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, and Cancer). This course is targeted at students who have studied the core disciplines of nutrition and food science related to health and wellness. It consists of core modules in advanced human nutrition and applied food sciences as well as advanced research methods and a research project. A choice of options allows for specialism in nutrition and food law. Learning and assessment is via a combination of case studies, presentations, research reports, critical reviews and a research dissertation.
A minimum of an upper second class honours degree of a UK university or its equivalent in a discipline associated with Food and Nutritional Science. In exceptional circumstances students with a relevant lower second class honours degree may be considered for entry. Students should have studied a substantial amount of nutrition/biochemistry/food science during undergraduate studies, allied to the study of research methods.
