Program description

Human Nutrition and (Public Health/Sports) - MSc (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Human Nutrition (Public Health/Sports) MSc will build the experience you gained from a related undergraduate degree and will provide you with the option to specialise in either public health nutrition or sports nutrition. Accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN), this master’s course will help you to develop advanced practical experience in your approach to research and practice in nutrition. By becoming an effective learner and practitioner with cross-functional skills, you’ll be well prepared for a future career in public health or sports nutrition.

The course team on our Human Nutrition (Public Health/Sports) MSc has a wide range of expertise ranging from whole body metabolic research, epidemiology and dietary assessment to clinical research and nutrition policy. These interests are reflected in the subjects you’ll study on the course.

In the core modules, you’ll explore the fundamental concepts of nutrition science and human metabolism and develop your research skills including the critical evaluation of literature, data collection and analysis. You'll also develop your laboratory techniques and methodologies for assessing the nutritional status of individuals, groups and populations.

The Human Nutrition Dissertation module will allow you to undertake a substantial piece of research in the field of nutrition. Through the analysis of data and synthesis of theory, policy and practice in relation to either public health nutrition or sports nutrition, this is your opportunity to become an expert in your own right.

On completion of the course, you will be eligible to become a registrant with the AfN as an associate nutritionist, which will allow you to place the designatory ANutr after your name. After three years of relevant experience as an associate nutritionist, you can become a full registrant. You can apply under one of five specialisms: public health, sports and exercise, nutrition science, animal or food.

Admission requirements

You will be required to have:

  • A minimum of a lower second class (2.2) UK undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in nutrition or a related subject such as biochemistry, sports science or physiology (other related subjects will be considered on an individual basis)
