Course Introduction

As a Human Nutrition student at Westminster, you will benefit from some of the best teaching and facilities available. Our staff and courses are recognised for their excellence in teaching, and our recently refurbished, state'of'the'art biosciences laboratories include a suite of biochemical test facilities for nutritional analysis, whole body metabolism, and determination of body composition. A lively research culture is reflected in current studies into metabolic features underlying obesity and diabetes mellitus type 2, nutritional intervention in over' and under'nourished populations, chronic disease nutritional epidemiology, and exercise and nutritional interventions for metabolic health. In the recent Research Assessment Exercise, a proportion of the research outputs in all subject areas submitted across Life Sciences were judged to be at world'leading and internationally excellent levels.
