Course Summary

Why choose this course

  • Study on the only evidence-based nutritional medicine masters in Europe, designed specifically for those with a role in nutrition and health practice, such as general practitioners, gastroenterologists, dietitians, pharmacists and food scientists.
  • Learn from lecturers who’ve been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize 2017-18 for Further and Higher Education, in recognition of their research excellence in the field of food and nutrition.
  • Get the academic requirements needed to register with the Association for Nutrition (AfN) to work as an associate nutritionist once you’ve graduated.

What you will study

You’ll gain a deep understanding of the complex relationships between nutrition and health, and the range and potential of nutritional management to postpone or treat disease. You’ll develop a critical and scholarly approach to theory, practice, literature and research findings.

You’ll study topics, including antioxidants, diet and behaviour, epidemiology, lipids, nutrition and exercise for health and sports performance, nutritional aspects of pregnancy, the nervous system and phytoprotectants.

You’ll also complete a research dissertation that will allow you to carry out experiments and projects on important topics in the field. We’ll match your interests with the expertise of our researchers, ensuring you get the best support.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University. Our graduates have lifetime access to Surrey Pathfinder, our online portal for appointment and events bookings, jobs, placements and interactive development tools.

This course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN). This means you’ll be eligible to apply for direct entry into the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists to work as an associate nutritionist (ANutr) on successful completion of your studies. Once you’ve gained three years of post-degree professional experience, you’ll be eligible to apply for registered nutritionist status (RNutr). ANutr and RNutr nutritionists are the only evidence-based nutritionists recognised by Public Health England and the Department of Health.
