Health, Nutrition and Environment 

Better Nutrition. Better Health

The things we eat. The places we work. The spaces we visit. All of these things directly affect our health, and our wellbeing.

You'll learn the knowledge and skills you need to help people develop better habits, and ensure that public and private spaces are safer and healthier places to be.

We have an inspiring teaching and research team with close links to the NHS, public health, research and industry and pride ourselves on applied courses that lead directly into graduate roles. Many of our courses include placements which allow you to apply your skills throughout the course and transition easily into the workplace. As accredited and chartered practitioners with the AFN, HCPC, CIEH and IOSH our experience is translated into our teaching and internationally renowned research. As a team we aim to engage you in all the opportunities these bring!

your student experience

Our students move onto fulfilling and transformative careers, in the health service, public health, industry and research. We prepare you for that leap with a combination of expert teaching, and practical work in cutting-edge facilities. You'll build your knowledge in a supportive community, test it in our labs and simulation suites, and apply it on a range of health and industry placements.

"I believe that the almost holistic approach that the course has taken to the field of food and nutrition has been a valuable experience that I truly believe has set me up to being a more holistic, ameliorative and better practitioner in my future career path."
