Nutrition (with Foundation Year option) BSc (Hons)

As more and more health issues are linked to diet, the field of nutrition has grown in importance, causing a substantial rise in related career opportunities. The course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition, so you will be eligible to register as a Registered Associate Nutritionist when you graduate.

On this course, you'll discover the key areas of nutrition, combining nutritional sciences with the social, behavioural and lifestyle issues that are present in society today and that influence the food and drink we consume. You’ll understand the complexity of nutritional science, as well as understand the food production industry by studying the food supply chain, food product development, legislation as well as the importance of food safety and microbiology. The psychological and sociological concepts of promoting health are blended with a sound understanding of the nutritional challenges in modern society to enable students to gain knowledge and important skills to prepare them for a wide range of career choices on completing their degree. What’s more, we’ve integrated a career-catapulting 30-week placement, which you can complete anywhere in the world, to gain a more realistic insight into the field of nutrition, nurture professional relationships and ultimately bolster your employability factor.

Foundation Year: We have a Foundation Year option for UK students who do not meet the entry requirements for the degree course. This additional year of study will give you a grounding in the scientific skills needed to prepare you for the Nutrition degree, building your confidence, knowledge and skills for further study. The Foundation Year is based at our Talbot campus. After successful completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress to the full degree and begin your Nutrition study. 

This course received 100% overall satisfaction rating from our final year students in the latest National Student Survey (NSS), so why not book on to an Open Day to come and meet us?
