What we eat, and how much we eat, has a profound effect on our health. While much of the world is still concerned with consuming sufficient energy and essential nutrients to survive, many 'industrialised' countries are suffering ill health due to over-consumption of inappropriate foods. At Nottingham we offer the unique opportunity to study nutrition alongside other related elements of food science, biochemistry and physiology. Our integrated masters course enables you to develop advanced research and analysis skills whilst learning how to communicate and engage with varied audiences. You will learn how chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes are all influenced by the diet we consume and build a sound scientific base to enable you to approach and understand nutritional information and advice. Accredited by the Association of Nutritionists, you will be able to join the Nutritionists Register, using the ANutr qualification upon graduation.
