COURSE OVERVIEW

What we eat, and how much we eat, has a profound effect on our health. While much of the world is still concerned with consuming sufficient energy and essential nutrients to survive, many ‘industrialised’ countries are suffering ill health due to over-consumption of inappropriate foods. Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes, and ageing itself are all influenced by the diet we consume.

Nutrition is the science that bridges the gap between basic understanding of metabolism and disease processes. Controversies and misunderstandings can only be avoided and resolved if well-trained nutritionists are available to inform, explain and develop the subject. The aim is to produce nutritionists with a strong scientific background and a firm grasp of modern nutritional science and its application in communities nationally and internationally. Nutrition is studied alongside biochemistry and physiology, food science, food safety and food production, which will give you a unique opportunity to gain insights into related fields in agriculture and the food industry.
