Placements opportunities

Careers in health and nutrition are highly sought after, so we’ll help you to gain the edge over other graduates by putting professional experience at the heart of your degree.

We’re one of only a few UK universities to include professional work placements with every degree, so you’ll graduate with extensive industry experience without having to take a sandwich year out.

Our students can complete placements at a wide range of organisations across the UK and abroad, which include facilities that provide residential care for adults and older adults, youth work teams, the NHS, children’s and family centres, charities and non-government agencies.

You’ll also have the opportunity to gain additional professional qualifications at no extra cost, such as personal training and exercise referral.
