Undergraduate course

Nutritional Health

Applications for this should be made by 31st August. Applications after this date may still be considered.
International Scholarships available


Our course will develop your knowledge of nutrition, public health and social care. It provides an opportunity to enhance your personal and professional development in relation to your role and work. You will explore how nutritional interventions can enhance clinical outcomes so you can continue to effectively contribute to the health of society.

Throughout your learning we will involve your current responsibilities and the issues faced on a day-to-day basis. Our course strengthens your interpersonal skills, which are required for effective communication with a variety of diverse individuals and groups.

Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: 20% of our research in the Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care unit is world leading or internationally excellent.

You will have the opportunity to participate in the design, implementation and presentation of nutritional service evaluation in your specific area, allowing you to enhance your contribution to the delivery of high quality patient/client care.

You may choose to study part-time for one year to gain a Certificate in Nutritional Health, or decide to study for two years and receive a Certificate HE in Nutritional Health.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.
