A Bachelor of Nutrition Science

The standard duration of our Bachelor of Nutrition Science is 3 years. For those who wish to become Dietitians, you can complete the Masters degree, extending your study to 4.5 years. The Bachelor of Nutrition Science will make you eligible to apply to register as a nutritionist, both in Australia and the UK, and will equip you for potential employment within the food industry, nutrition research, and the public health sector.

Early years

No matter where you intend to head with your degree, everyone starts at the same place. In the first two years you can expect to gain an appreciation of food in society; nutrition requirements across the life-span; an in-depth knowledge of nutritional and biomedical science, from biochemistry to immunology; and the role of nutrition in health and disease. Theory will also be intertwined with practical elements such as assessing dietary intake, food chemistry and composition, and the complex regulatory requirements relating to food labelling.

Final Year

In the final year, the degree becomes more specialised. You will have the opportunity to focus on an area of nutrition research that interests you. You will learn from researchers and practitioners who specialise in diverse areas including dietary intake and metabolism, public health nutrition, sports nutrition, body composition, and appetite regulation.
