Why Study Human Nutrition with us?

As the MSc in Human Nutrition is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN), graduates of this course are entitled to direct entry to the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN). This allows graduates to use the letters ‘ANutr’ after their name.

The course will appeal to professionals within the food and nutrition industries as well as health professionals.

Our course will also be attractive to undergraduates with non-nutrition degrees who wish to move into the field of nutrition and those with nutrition-related degrees wishing further their studies to gain a postgraduate qualification.

The course is highly flexible, allowing you to study full time or part time to suit your personal and work commitments. Flexibility is achieved through the delivery of modules over three-day blocks (see our Timetable 2018/19) followed by eight weeks of campus – or home-based learning. This allows students nationally and internationally to attend the course. Our course is delivered by a team of experienced academics and also practitioners who work in high-profile areas.
