About

There is a growing demand worldwide for highly trained graduates in the field of clinical nutrition and health for positions in the health services, local government, food industries and research and development. Countries all over the world recognise the important role nutrition plays in improving health and preventing disease and have prioritised nutrition and diet within their national health plans.
Most countries worldwide have identified a need to increase the capacity of their nutrition workforce, but few have the resources to provide this in their own country beyond undergraduate level.
The MSc Clinical Nutrition and Health is designed to address this priority. It is aimed at medical doctors, graduates of life sciences (with a strong underpinning in physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, health psychology, food science) and degree level health professionals who want to improve their knowledge of clinical nutrition.
The programme will be of particular interest to overseas students for whom this specialist field of study may not be available in their country of origin. The MSc research project develops your research skills, scientific writing skills and consolidates your knowledge base in clinical nutrition and health.
