This MSc is designed to prepare you for professional practice in public health nutrition in the EU or internationally, and is accredited by The Nutrition Society. All three programmes build on a sound theoretical framework, and apply this to enable you to solve nutrition-related health problems, in whatever setting you work. On successful completion of the MSc programme, you will be able to register as an associate public health nutritionist on the professional register of The Nutrition Society.

Careers: The course will enable you to practise as a public health nutritionist or pursue a career in research

Normal University attendance is for two three-day teaching blocks per module: three modules in the first semester and three in the second semester. You would normally be expected to successfully complete the first three modules before progressing to the modules in the second semester. Once you have completed all the taught modules, you will register for a 14-week dissertation (MSc only) via traditional research or via a professional project. Programmes at PG Cert and PG Dip levels are also available or you may register for stand-alone assessed modules.

The MSc modules are:

* Assessment of nutritional status
* Food systems
