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.

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.
