Food and Nutrition with Professional Experience

Summary: This BSc (Hons) Food and Nutrition course develops your understanding of the complex interactions between food composition, metabolism, diet, health and behaviour – all vital in the drive to reduce the incidence of long-term conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. How we go from ‘basic science to changing behaviour’ is key to the development of nutritional strategies. Course details: This course reflects the range of skills and knowledge required by professionals in the very diverse food and nutrition sector. You are equipped for further study, or for a wide variety of career opportunities, including teaching, nutrition, food science, food safety, environmental health and new product development. After the course: This course has been designed to meet the requirements of the Nutrition Society's Public Health Nutrition accreditation requirements. The broad base of the course offers a wide variety of career opportunities in nutrition and health promotion, the food industry and teaching, for example. For those with an interest in dietetics, the course provides a basis for entry to professionally accredited postgraduate courses. 100% of food, nutrition and health science (the previous title for our food and nutrition course) respondents to the survey were in work or further study within six months from completing their course* (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14). *The percentage quoted are actual results from respondents who graduated from our food, nutrition and health science course and may differ from KIS data which sometimes aggregates data across several years, and sometimes across different subjects based on JACS codes.
