“My course gave me a firm grounding in the science of nutrition. I was able to refine my knowledge and skills on my placements, and this strong practical focus ensured I felt really confident when I started work straight after graduating. Studying sociology and psychology alongside science gave me a real insight into the social factors that influence nutrition. Working in communities, this understanding has proved invaluable.
