Nutrition is the scientific study of the nutrients in food, how they are used in the body, and the relationship between diet, health and disease. A nutritionist may apply their knowledge in a wide variety of fields which include public health, the food industry, product development, sports nutrition, animal nutrition and nutrition science. A nutritionist has the opportunity to diversify into many different areas and can opt for a variety of career pathways. You might be involved in: developing food and nutrition policy; food product reformulation or development; researching nutritional approaches to preventing, managing or treating disease; or training community workers to support individuals and groups to develop cooking skills. Our course provides you with the opportunity to tailor your degree to your own specific interests so you can specialise in the area of nutrition that interest you most. Staff have excellent links with the food industry, NHS, research institutes, and national and international agencies. These links are fully utilised to provide external speakers, study visits, projects and placements which ensure that the course has relevance to employment opportunities.
