  • Objectives
    Nutrition has become a major issue for consumers and nutritionists are playing an increasingly important role in ensuring that consumers can access convenient food of high quality that is nutritionally beneficial. Nutritionists with training in food science are therefore now at the forefront of new product development, packaging design and relaying health messages to the consumer. This degree will also provide graduates with the expertise to work in nutrition education and promotion, and within government departments concerned with public health issues. There are also opportunities for our graduates to pursue higher taught (MSc) or research (PhD) degrees in the area of food and health.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
