About

The Human Nutrition Public Health Sports programme of London Metropolitan University 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.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

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 Human Nutrition Public Health Sports programme of London Metropolitan University , 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.

After the course

Career opportunities include roles in the food industry, research, local authorities, governmental bodies, the media and charitable organisations. You’ll also be well placed to apply for research studentships with a view to completing a PhD. Employment opportunities are currently increasing in both fields.
