We are a leading institution for studying nutrition and our human nutrition programme is one of a select group of nutrition degrees accredited by the UK Association for Nutrition. The programme investigates the relationship between nutrition and health, and how good health can be promoted by following a healthful diet. In addition, the programme focuses on the effects of food and specific nutrients on physiology and metabolism and the incidence of disease. We are committed to understanding and evaluating the socio-economic determinants and behavioural basis of nutrition-related issues so as to promote improved diet and health for all members of society.
You will study the science of nutrition along with other students in diverse science-related fields such as biomedical, biological and sports science. Our teaching staff are highly qualified having received degrees or conducted research here at Greenwich and in institutions such as King's College London, University of Cambridge, and University of Surrey. Our courses support online learning as well as part-time and overseas study. This programme offers great links with employers, so you gain the skills and knowledge required by the industry while increasing your employability prospects.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Applicants should have:
300 UCAS points
INCLUDING A-levels in a science, ideally biology and/or chemistry but other sciences will be considered; and one other suitable A-Level
OR BTEC National, DVCE or Advanced GNVQ, or equivalent qualifications
PLUS a minimum of five GCSEs at grade C or above (including English and mathematics), or equivalent qualifications.
• We welcome applications from mature students.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
