Delivered at Wiltshire College and University Centre's Salisbury campus, this course will prepare you for working in a scientific or health environment.The Foundation Degree (FdSc) in Health & Nutrition will give you the vocational skills and knowledge to be attractive to employers at the end of the two years of study. Emphasis is placed on nurturing you to learn new scientific and mathematical skills within a safe and enabling environment.
You will learn how to research current topics, and although there is no work experience as part of the course, there is a Work Related Project in the second year which may require you to liaise with a local company or organisation and apply your knowledge to a live, relevant topic or issue.
Although you can graduate after 2 years with the FdSc in Health and Nutrition, an additional third year on a top-up course to achieve a full BSc degree could be more attractive to employers in the field.
If you do not meet the entry requirements for the FdSc, you can opt to take a foundation year in applied science before progressing on to the FdSc Health & Nutrition. The number of students in any one year will be relatively small so all students will have maximum support for each module from a personal tutor.
Overall, the course will get you workplace ready, with the theoretical and practical knowledge which would benefit any employer in the field of health.
