Nutrition and Dietetics

Nutrition and Dietetics

Our courses focus on the impact of nutrition on health and disease. You'll look at nutrition from the cellular and molecular level through to people and populations.

World-leading research

Our teaching staff include nationally- and internationally-recognised nutritionists, dieticians, and scientists. They deliver world-leading nutrition and health research. You'll benefit from their cutting-edge knowledge and research-led teaching.

Our degrees

We have a comprehensive suite of professionally-accredited nutrition courses. They all address the roles played by nutrition in relation to health and wellbeing, but with differences in emphasis.

Placements

Work experience is invaluable.

Our nutrition and dietetic programmes provide you with the opportunity to apply your academic knowledge in the workplace and develop valuable employability skills.

In our Integrated Master of Dietetics course, these placements are compulsory and integrated through all years of study.

In our suite of food and nutrition programmes, you can opt to complete a professional placement year. 

Research led teaching

Research-led teaching is extremely important to us to ensure that our curriculum is up-to-date and innovative.

All of our staff are actively involved in research and there are several opportunities for students to get involved in research projects throughout their degree.

We enjoy close links with the Faculty of Medical Sciences world-leading research institutes.

Our students gain knowledge of the latest developments and discoveries in human nutrition. They learn about the maintenance of health and wellbeing, and the role of nutrition in disease.

Conference and other research events

Our Nutrition and Dietetic students have the opportunity to attend an external conference. This allows them to hear from, and to discuss with, varied key decision makers, scientists and business leaders. 

The conference trip is a highlight of the programme and the students value it as part of their educational experience.
