About

Through this one-year Human Nutrition course from Manchester Metropolitan University, you’ll develop the skills and knowledge to work as a nutritionist in both the health and food sectors.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

You’ll study the theory behind nutritional sciences, exploring topics from food guidelines to biochemistry to the distribution and control of disease. You’ll also have sessions in our laboratories where you’ll complete practical evaluations.

During practical sessions, we’ll help you to understand the assessments you might conduct as a nutritionist. We use patient case studies, so you might complete a nutritional assessment for a patient with Crohn’s disease or diabetes, or perhaps analyse a person’s diet.

Many of our students complete public health nutrition-based projects for their dissertations, focusing on areas they’re hoping to develop a career in. Recent topics in the  Human Nutrition course from  Manchester Metropolitan University  include how diet and calorie intake might affect the efficacy of chemotherapy treatment, and exercise barriers for young women.

Career

From nutrition-related roles within government organisations to working in the media to food industry research and development, there are a variety of career paths you could take as a nutritionist.

You might work in a health setting (such as a hospital) or perhaps set up a consultancy business as a nutritionist, or develop your career within research or teaching nutrition.
