About Nutrition at Bournemouth University

As more and more health issues are linked to diet, the field of nutrition has grown in importance, causing a substantial rise in related career opportunities. The course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition, so you will be eligible to register as an Associate Nutritionist when you graduate.

On this course, you'll discover the key areas of nutrition, combining the science with the social, behavioural and lifestyle issues that are present in society today. You’ll understand the principles of nutrition, and also delve into food development, production, legislation and safety, and the psychosocial concepts of promoting health. What’s more, we’ve integrated a career-catapulting 30-week placement, which you can complete anywhere in the world, to gain a more realistic insight into the field of nutrition, nurture professional relationships and ultimately bolster your employability factor.

If your appetite for study isn’t fully sated after this course, there is the option to round off your higher education with an additional year at postgraduate level, gaining a Master's level qualification (MNutr (Hons) Nutrition). Depending on whether you complete a placement, this will be delivered as the fourth or fifth year of your study.
