Why study Abertay's BSc (Hons) in Fitness, Nutrition and Health?

Is the UK going through an obesity epidemic? Why have obesity levels more than trebled in the last 30 years despite the health and wellbeing industries prospering? What can be done to promote fitness and balanced nutrition throughout the country?

Our Fitness, Nutrition and Health programme will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to develop solutions to meet these challenges head on, with teaching underpinned by research and practical work delivered in our state-of-the-art facilities.

This joint offering between the Divisions of Engineering and Food Science and Sport and Exercise Sciences draws on the core disciplines of physiology, psychology, biomechanics and nutrition, and provides built-in work placements designed to match your career interests.

Abertay University ranked in the top three Scottish Universities for Student Satisfaction in the 2020 National Student Survey (NSS). And in the Guardian Good University Guide for 2021, Abertay ranked 3rd in the UK for student satisfaction with teaching, and 8th in the UK for overall student satisfaction.
