BSc (Hons) Food, Nutrition and Human Health

The BSc (Hons) Food, Nutrition and Human Health course at Robert Gordon University is based on the scientific study of nutrients and food components, and how they affect our health. We particularly focus on their impact on growth and development, disease, athletic performance and food quality.

Nutritionists and food scientists have a key role in maintaining the health of our population. They may develop and evaluate nutrition policies and public health campaigns; apply nutritional principles to the management of diet in athletic performance; deal with ingredients, allergens, and legislation when developing food and drink products; or study metabolic and physiological responses of the human body to food and nutrients.

A key feature of the course is a 12-week work-based placement providing you with valuable experience highly sought after by employers.
