fields i can go in with a human nutrition degreeWatch
Need more help on going postgrad?
University of Surrey has a similar list:
In terms of postgrad study, it will depend more on what you want to do as opposed to what you could get into with a nutrition degree. Makes life easier.
I graduated with a 2.1, however, dont want to be a dietician. My degree was usually science based and i picked modules such as biochemistry and applied and medical science. Therefore, can i do a postgraduate which will take me to a different field and what career aspects can i take. Looking at kings college postgraduate courses such as cardiovascular research, immunology and microbiome in health and disease would i be able to get into these courses if i did a part time job as a laboratory technician in a college as i dont have much experience in lab work compared to other degrees such as biomedical science or pharacology.
KCL Nutrition MSc has similar module to my BSc plus they didnt state much module content there, so it put me off. I am kinda interested in gut microbes so I applied for Microbiome in health and disease MSc and received an offer from them. The point is, the course only focus on microbiome that is very narrow topic even though it is a very very hot topic. Plus we (students with nutrition BSc) dont have many solid lab skills compared to other biomed/ biochem/ other biosciences students, so not many jobs will come to you. You will also learn programming skills but the skill you learnt there is nothing compared to proper programmer or to those molecular biology students (some of them learnt bioinformatic). More important, when you look at the department name, you will find out their focus is on oral microbes. So you might not want to apply for this if you do not want to do research on microbiome, especially on oral microbes in the future
So I also applied for Clinical Research MRes at Imperial. I think it is a better choice for a nutriton student
or you might want to get a degree in marketing/ management MSc, it is quite useful if you are going to food industry
