St Mary’s University Nutrition courses offer students the opportunity to develop the professional competencies and skills required for the application of nutritional science in a number of fields.
Diet and Nutrition is a multi-million-pound industry and continually in the media. Chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancers and diabetes kill more than 36 million 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. Studying and researching Nutrition allows a sound review of the scientific basis for the links between dietary factors, health and disease.
At St Mary’s we offer a variety of programmes and research opportunities; Short courses, Nutrition BSc, Human Nutrition MSc, PGDip, PGCert, Applied Sports Nutrition MSc, PGDip, PGCert and the recently validated Nutrition and Genetics MSc.
Researchers at St Mary’s University are carrying out a study investigating the relationship between diet and genetics on cardiovascular disease risk. If you would be interested in finding out about your cardiovascular disease risk and would like to receive personalised dietary advice based on your current diet and genotype, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and come and visit us at the St Mary’s University stand 680.
