New curriculum 2016
Please note that the programme is in the process of being revised in regards to the curriculum, structure and contents of the programme. These changes will take effect in September 2016. The main aim of the revision is to make the profile of Global Nutrition and Health graduates even sharper and better equipped for entering the Global Nutrition and Health profession.
The new structure of the programme will incorporate elements of the current foundation year and the two current specialisations but in the future the programme will have only one specialisation meaning that all students on the programme will follow the same path of study. It will still, however, be possible to shape the programme via electives and interprofessional courses. To get an idea of what the programme entails, please look through the information in the left-hand menu, but please bear in mind that the programme will be different from September 2016.
Once the new revised curriculum is finalised we will make the information available on this site, so please check back in the beginning/spring of 2016.
