Program description

Human Nutrition (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)

Our Human Nutrition (including foundation year) BSc course is designed to enable you to enter an undergraduate degree if you don’t hold traditional qualifications or can’t meet the necessary requirements to enter the standard three-year degree. On completion of this four-year Program you’ll graduate with the same academic title and award as students who enter the standard human nutrition course.

The mix of broad scientific perspective and in-depth examination of human nutrition will prepare you for academic study at undergraduate level, as well as a career in nutrition within the public or private sectors.

Our Human Nutrition (including foundation year) BSc degree will open up opportunities for you to work in public health and nutrition. On the course you’ll address how lifestyle, diet and physical activity contribute to health and wellbeing.

Throughout the degree you’ll receive support to improve your skills and help you succeed academically. You’ll receive one-on-one support from your academic mentor and tutor, with whom you’ll be able to address any concerns and discover your strengths. If you find yourself needing extra support in improving your academic skills or polishing your interview technique there will be opportunities to attend specialist workshops to help you succeed.

Your foundation year will be shared with students from other disciplines within the School of Human Sciences, which will prove the perfect opportunity to meet students from other courses and learn about different areas of science. During this year you’ll gain fundamental knowledge of human sciences, which is vital for successful study at undergraduate level. The topics you’ll study will include biochemistry, biology, chemistry, nutrition and sports science, so you’ll gain an understanding of how scientific reasoning and methods are used within each discipline.

In the subsequent three years you’ll join students who are starting on the traditional three-year human nutrition course. You’ll also study the same course content and get the same choice of modules. To find out more about the subsequent three years of study visit our Human Nutrition BSc course page.

If you find that you’d like to specialise in a different discipline of science by the end of your foundation year, there will be some flexibility to allow you to do this.
