The MSc is an intensive conversion programme intended primarily for graduates in biological sciences or medicine. The PG Dip is appropriate for those who wish to study for a shorter period than the MSc, including those who need to update their knowledge and do not wish to undertake a research project. Both aim to provide you with a broad knowledge and understanding of nutrition and to develop your scientific skills to graduate level.
MSc and PG Dip: The principles of nutrition, public health nutrition, clinical nutrition and nutrition research skills. From May to August MSc students undertake a supervised research project.
Core modules: Principles of Nutrition; Public Health Nutrition; Clinical Nutrition; Nutrition Research Skills; MSc Nutrition Project.
