Nutrition and Health

Overview

Referring to a cook book, two Nutrition students demonstrate cooking skills in a kitchen on campus.

Combining the disciplines of nutrition, biology, food science, psychology and entrepreneurship, our Nutrition and Health degree provide ideal preparation for a range of careers working in the food, nutrition, health promotion or leisure industries.

You will gain a comprehensive insight into the promotion of healthy living and the benefits of a well-balanced diet, as well as exploring the role of nutrition in the prevention of disease.

Successful completion of the programme enables you to apply for Direct Entry as a Registered Associate Nutritionist (ANutr) with the Association for Nutrition (AfN).

Facilities

A student is observed by three of her peers as she dissects meat in a biosciences laboratory.A professional food science laboratory and kitchen space  enables Nutrition students to undertake a variety of practical work with foods in a purpose-built environment.

This dedicated space and the University’s modern Biosciences laboratories are used to test how certain foods are manufactured and produced, investigate the physical properties of food, and conduct sensory evaluations. You will also have opportunities to participate in enterprise initiatives and research activity using the Nutrition facilities.

Learning resources for Nutrition students include sphygmomanometers (for measuring resting blood pressure to indicate cardio vascular risk), bariatric and geriatric suits to experience physical and mobility restrictions, wrist-based global positioning systems (garmin devices) that measure exercise duration, energy expenditure and heart rate, and actigraphs which estimate exercise intensity and track sleep quality and duration.
