Course summary

You'll study a range of topics, and apply your skills on rewarding projects and assignments. After completing your foundation, you'll have everything you need for full honours degree study, and progress directly onto the BSc Nutrition, Diet and Wellbeing course.

How you learn

The course is suitable if you don't meet the entry requirements for our BSc (Honours) Nutrition, Diet and Wellbeing course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other Sheffield Business School foundation year students, then move on to the degree.

You will learn in a supportive, challenging and exciting environment. You will be based in Sheffield Business School, a vibrant, dynamic setting with excellent facilities and located in the heart of the city.

You learn through

  • lectures and seminars
  • case studies
  • presentations
  • self-directed study
  • work placements
  • activities and events

In the foundation year, you'll study wider business topics, while specialising in your chosen subject area. You'll learn useful skills such as academic writing, work in diverse teams and learn to utilise a wide variety of data sources. In doing so, you'll fully prepare yourself for undergraduate study.

Applied learning

Degree preparation

After the foundation year, you will be ready to start the full degree. BSc Nutrition, Diet and Wellbeing is an engaging, challenging course where you will learn to excel in your field, under expert tutelage and with fantastic opportunities for progression, networking and work placements throughout.

Work placements

As a student on the full BSc Nutrition, Diet and Wellbeing course you will have the opportunity to undertake an optional paid placement year.  We have a robust support system in place to help you when preparing and applying for a placement, and you will be supported by a dedicated work and employability mentor. Completing a placement is a great way to significantly enhance your professional development portfolio which could be used to support an application for recognition by an appropriate professional body such as the Association for Nutrition.

Live projects

On the full degree, you will have the opportunity to work on range of consultancy projects. For example, past students have worked on the development and nutritional analysis of a seasonal menu for a local dementia friendly café, healthy eating classroom education sessions in local primary schools, cook and eat sessions for a local scouts group and the development of a cooking resource pack for young adults with learning difficulties.

Field trips

Once you have progressed to the full degree, there are a number of field trips embedded in different modules to provide context to your learning and give you the opportunity to apply your skills. Past students have attended Food Matters Live, and various British Dietetic Association workshops.

Networking opportunities

The placement, live projects and field trips provide excellent networking opportunities. Additionally, alumni are invited regularly to come and meet our current students. This represents a fantastic opportunity to not only get a critical insight of different career options, but also start building your own professional network.

Competitions

We encourage our degree students to submit their work to the Nutrition Society student conference and relevant awards. In the past, our students have been recognised externally for the high standard of their work. One of our students recently won the Institute of Food Science and Technology young scientist award.
