You will also take modules such as Biochemistry of Nutrition, Hygiene and Toxicology or Merchandise Science and Bromatology. 

Outlook for the future: What you will do after your studies 

If you work in companies, the subject of quality and project management, which is part of the study programme, will also be interesting for you. You want to start your own business afterwards? No problem. In the Bachelor of Nutritional Sciences, you will receive valuable information about how to start a business.
