We provide well established and regarded programmes for the study of Nutrition and Dietetics.
The flagship of the centre is the newly built Food Industry Centre, which boasts many facilities.
Welcome to Nutrition, Dietetics and Food Sciences
Our academic team includes Dietitians, Public Health Nutritionists and Food Scientists with extensive experience of working in the NHS, Health Promotion, Public Health, Sport, Overseas Development and the Food industry. They combine professional experience with academic expertise to prepare students for relevant employment on graduation.
Courses are taught using a variety of methods with plenty of opportunities for workshops, practical tasks, role play, practical food preparation, presentations and use of web-based media. These methods enable students to apply their knowledge, think creatively, problem solve and develop vocational skills.
Student placements enable the application of knowledge to real-life settings and increase students’ employability. Placements can be in hospitals, primary care trusts, public health organisations or with food manufacturers.
Our programmes are complimented by state of the art facilities in the new Food Industry Centre. Taking advantage of our new research laboratories, Cardiff Metropolitan University is enhancing its excellent reputation for food safety research.
