    Why Study Nutritional Medicine?

    This program is the first university-level, evidence-based Masters degree course in this subject outside United Kingdom and is appropriate for health practitioners interested in the role of nutrition in disease prophylaxis and management.

The program is delivered by leading experts at the cutting edge of nutritional research and practice, providing evidence-based teaching with an applied approach. No equivalent program exists elsewhere outside the UK at present.

    Students will gain a deep understanding of the complex relationships between nutrition and diseases. They will learn to take a critical and scholarly approach to theory, practice, literature and research findings, resulting in a greater understanding of the range and potential of the nutritional management of disease.
