The Bachelor of Science (BSc) is a three-year undergraduate degree which enables each student to develop his or her own interests in a science subject (science major) and related subjects. Students have the flexibility to combine their major subject with other science subjects, as well as subjects from other disciplines across the University.
Why study Human Nutrition?
Nutrition affects everyone, making human nutrition relevant to all. With new knowledge and skills, you will be able to make a real difference at the global, national, community and whanau levels. You will also learn about yourself while you study. Studying human nutrition opens doors to career opportunities in a variety of disciplines, both in New Zealand and worldwide. It also provides all the background required to enter our postgraduate programmes to become a registered nutritionist or dietitian. You’ll learn from world-leading experts who will provide you with the most up-to-date information in their specialist areas.
We will equip you with skills that can be used in a number of careers. Our graduates work in the health sector, government organisations, corporations, research, teaching, high-performance sport, private practice, and the food industry. Maori and Pacific graduates are often sought after, particularly by health providers across the country.
Bachelor of Science with Honours (BSc(Hons)) is also available.
A specific aim of the Bachelor of Science with Honours (BSc(Hons)) degree is to develop advanced theoretical and research skills and in so doing to provide a platform for an advanced professional or academic career.
We recognise many other qualifications as equivalent to the New Zealand qualification for entrance.
