Do you want to help prevent disease and improve the understanding of the relationship between diet and health? Our MSc in Human Nutrition will improve your knowledge of metabolic and molecular nutrition while also learning about the issues affecting public health. On this comprehensive MSc programme you will have the opportunity to study different areas of human nutrition before deciding which to specialise in, including molecular nutrition which Aberdeen is unique in offering and food security and sustainability, where we are leaders in the field. This flexible course structure means your studying will be best aligned with your interests and career requirements.
The programme is run in collaboration with the Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health, part of the University of Aberdeen, one of the leading and oldest nutrition research institutes in Europe. For over 100 years, the Rowett Institute has played a major role in informing policy and establishing the link between diet and health; it continues to work on major diet-related health and food security issues to this day. This MSc Programme is accredited by the Association for Nutrition. AfN Degree Accreditation supports development of nutritionists' skills by recognising university courses which deliver evidence-based nutrition education to a professional level.

Students from other disciplines who do not have the required level of biomedical sciences can be considered for the programme once they have successfully completed the University of Aberdeen’s short online course, Access to Postgraduate Biomedical Science. This course has been designed to help students, planning to study Human Nutrition, gain the required level of biomedical sciences knowledge and understanding to prepare for postgraduate studies.
Students are evaluated in the form of essays, laboratory practicals, individual and group presentations and written examinations in December and March. The assessments aim to train you for your future career. We use innovative assessment procedures which complement the skills that you will be required for the future, such as academic poster presentations, writing papers and communicating with the public. The MSc project is assessed by a thesis and oral presentations of the project findings.
In the first semester of study students take four core courses and generic skills training. These taught courses are based on lectures, laboratory practical classes and individual assignments. The topics covered include dietary assessment, macronutrients, energy balance and metabolism, micronutrients, nutritional status and body composition, nutrition throughout the lifecycle, diet and disease, computing and applied statistics.
