Course Information

As more and more businesses require future food and nutrition employees to possess competent research skills, the UC Bachelor of Human Nutrition (Honours) course will give you the skills, qualifications, and confidence to stand out and be recognised.

This 1-year program offers an additional option to those already studying an undergraduate degree in a health or nutrition-related field and already possess the necessary marks to articulate into an honours program. A significant component of this course will also involve choosing and completing a tailor-made research thesis under the direct supervision and support of your research supervisor and course Convenor.

In researching this thesis, you’ll refine your research and technical skills; learn about the applications of food and nutritional sciences, epidemiological techniques, public health issues and be introduced to technologies that will assist you to assess the latest food science and human nutrition literature.

As part of your thesis, you may be required to work with academic members from different disciplines and universities from around the world, as well as industry stakeholders looking to initiate innovation and development. In each situation, you will be given a chance to network and build relationships with those directly involved in helping to influence and direct the future of food and nutrition industry here in Australia and abroad.

You will also be strongly encouraged to further enhance your professional association by joining leading industry organisations such as Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology, Nutrition Society of Australia and the Australian Society for Medical Research.
