Biology, food science, psychology – nutrition brings many subjects together to understand the pivotal role food plays in leading a healthy life. In our food skills area and our biosciences labs, you’ll test how certain foods are produced and investigate their properties.
Because our course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition, you can register as an associate nutritionist when you graduate. Complete a placement or join research projects as a student to prepare for jobs with the NHS, in health promotion, the food industry and more.
