There is a growing realisation among the general public that good nutrition is key to good health. However, as scientific research is published and hits the popular press, there is also increasing confusion as to what is a healthy way to eat.
That is where our MSc in Science and Practice comes in - we teach our students how to make sense of this ever changing evidence base. This means they can help their clients find their way through the maze of information and motivate them to make the changes needed to achieve optimal health. We are passionate about a personalised approach to nutrition and our mission to teach the future leaders in the field. Our nutrition course has been running (and developing) for 10 years now and our graduates are taking their quality training into their communities and beyond - and making a real difference to people’s lives. Our graduates work in many interesting and diverse ways including:
- Private practice
- Local health service collaborations
- Creating a supplement business
- Combining nutrition practice with an existing therapy
- Health promotion
