With an increasing demand from both the government and the public for nutritional and dietetic education, the role of registered nutritionists and dietitians is becoming increasingly important.

The BSc (Hons) Nutrition is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN). Graduates from this course will be eligible to apply for direct entry to the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN) as Associate Nutritionists. As a registered nutritionist, you will have career opportunities within public health, clinical nutrition, food industry, retailing industries, academia, research, teaching, sports and exercise nutrition, journalism and international public health nutrition.

The BSc (Hons) Dietetics course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the British Dietetic Association (BDA). As a registered dietitian there are opportunities in the NHS (both hospital and community settings). In addition, dietitians may work in charities, public health, food industry, education and research or on a freelance basis.
