Professional registration with the AfN is rapidly gaining recognition by relevant employers, and our Human Nutrition course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN). This accreditation can accelerate your process, once graduated, to become a registered nutritionist (R.Nutr.). Nutrition is an interesting integration of biology, food science, health and sociology. Highly trained professionals in nutrition are needed to provide expert advice on the nutrition, safety and health benefits of foods for individuals, the community and the food industry. Foundation Year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so.
