Nutrition with Foundation Year

Course Introduction

Our four-year degree programmes (including a foundation year) provide an alternative route to undergraduate study at university if you do not have the grades to access higher education in the traditional way.

In the first year of the four-year degree, students will focus specifically on communication (oral and written), critical thinking, research, independent study, and digital and employability skills.

Students will study three core modules and three science modules

On successful completion of the foundation year, students will automatically progress on to the first year of their chosen undergraduate programme.

Chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancers and diabetes kill more than 36m people each year. An unhealthy diet is known to be a major risk factor in the cause of many of these diseases. Additionally diet and nutritional status can be linked to many other conditions such as osteoporosis, dental disease and dementia for example. This programme will provide a sound review of the scientific basis for the links between dietary factors, health and disease. The programme offers the opportunity for you to develop the professional competencies and skills required for the application of nutritional science in a number of fields. Applied modules on this programme include: Weight Management, Sports Nutrition, Clinical Nutrition, Food and Nutrition Policy and Health Promotion and Anthropometry.

Course Modules

The Foundation Year modules are Personal Learning Competencies, Taking a Professional Approach, The Individual Project, Foundations of Life, The Chemistry of Nature and Principles of Physics and Mathematics
