Obesity and Weight Management

Course Description

This full-time or part-time programme commenced in Sept '06 and is run in association with the National Obesity Forum. It was the first of its type in the UK and is delivered by a team of experienced academics, GPs, hospital doctors, surgeons, dieticians, nutritionists, exercise specialists and psychologists.

Whilst this multidisciplinary programme is focussed professional development programme aimed at healthcare professionals from worldwide, it is also suitable for newly qualified graduates aspiring to work in this high profile area.

The epidemic of overweight and obesity is part of a worldwide trend, and it is contributing to the increasing levels of non-communicable metabolic and mechanically-induced disorders such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, joint problems, obstructive sleep apnoea and certain cancers.

Students select six from the following modules:

The Obesity Epidemic - Weight Management as a Public Health Issue (core module for all awards)
Causes and Assessment of Obesity
Dietary Approaches to Weight Management (core module for MSc)
Exercise and Weight Management (core module for MSc)
Behaviour Modification in Weight Management (core module for MSc)
Childhood Obesity
Research Methods and Data Analysis (core module for MSc)


* The programme is highly flexible, allowing you to study full time or part time to suit your personal and work commitments

* Flexibility is achieved through the delivery of modules over three-four day blocks followed by eight weeks of home-based learning. This allows students nationally and internationally to attend the programme.
