Nutrition and Sport Science


Chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancers and diabetes kill more than 36 million people each year. An unhealthy diet is known to be a major risk factor in the cause of many of these diseases.

Additionally diet and nutritional status can be linked to many other conditions such as osteoporosis, dental disease and dementia. This degree programme provides a sound review of the scientific basis for the links between dietary factors, health and disease.

Diet and Nutrition is a multi-million pound industry and continually in the media. Our Nutrition degree has been successfully accredited by the Association for Nutrition since 2010, enabling you to become a Registered Nutritionist upon graduating. This will provide a strong advantage in a competitive market and is a valuable commodity.
