Nutrition and Food Safety

Let's trailblaze in more than nutrition. Let's trailblaze in life-changing research.

We are home to some of the world’s leading researchers in the field of nutrition and food safety which means our courses benefit from the expertise of the industry leaders. 

Nutrition and food safety graduates are increasingly recognised as a vital part of public and individual health, using their skills to help companies, people and communities make the right dietary choices. The University’s Nutritional Sciences and Applied Food Safety Studies (NSAFSS) Group has been established to advance and promote the development of teaching and research within the field of food and nutrition. Our internationally renowned staff are all currently active in research, ensuring an innovative yet focused approach with practical application in our undergraduate and postgraduate course delivery. Our strong industry links ensure that students and graduates have the opportunities to gain experience in the industry through internships and placements.
