Nutritional Sciences - Manchester Metropolitan University

Developing new food products for multinational companies. Implementing nutrition policies in the community. Analysing menus in a care home. Understanding the link between foods, diets, dietary patterns, nutrients, and physical health is paramount in the current environment. And that’s where nutritionists can help. You’ll look at the issues that make the headlines and the topics that touch our everyday lives. Whilst our relationship with food has never had a higher profile in the public sphere, the food industry is constantly adapting to new consumer trends and developments. Many dietary factors can influence a person’s health, and throughout our course, you’ll gain a working knowledge of a range of contemporary nutrition issues such as the origins of nutrition-related illnesses, the chemistry of food and dietary assessment. You won’t simply learn the theory behind nutrition, you’ll explore how it works through practical sessions. We have chemistry and microbiology laboratories, a taste panel suite, a product development kitchen, a bakery and food quality testing equipment. We also have the capability to produce and develop new food products, test and analyse them, taking them through to the packaging and labelling stage. This creates a holistic approach to our teaching and means you gain real life experience whilst studying with us. **Features and benefits** - **Employability-** You can spend your third year on a placement, working in industry to gain valuable skills and experience. - **Approved course**- Our course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition. - **Outstanding facilities**- You’ll have access to our food and nutrition suite, which includes three food development studios and a physical testing studio, as well as bakery and food quality testing equipment. - **Industry links**- We’re home to the Manchester Food Centre (MFC) which connects the university with industry. -**Extra curricular**- You can join MetMunch, an award-winning, student-led sustainability and outreach programme.
