Roehampton was a healthy start to my career

Hi! My name's Alix and I’m in my final year of Nutrition and Health. . I chose to study at Roehampton because it was one of the few universities that offered accreditation to become a registered nutritionist. The course hasn’t just been academic; it’s been life-changing. I had the chance to work on Jamie Oliver’s Kitchen Garden project as part of my dissertation - to research the impact of food education on primary school children, which was fascinating. My course has helped me realise my potential beyond what I thought I could achieve!

I am particularly interested in promoting healthy living and my class mates all want to work in different fields such as food science or sports nutrition. So the course has prepared us all for working in different areas relating to nutrition.

The food labs on campus were a great facility for our course and my lecturers have been helpful and supportive right from the start. I remember when I started my course I was anxious and had lots of questions but they were always reassuring.

I found the Growhampton project really helpful for my course. It’s a great initiative to promote healthy eating and organic foods. Lots of my classmates are volunteering with them to grow food on campus and sell it on the market days in Digby square, outside the Hive Café. It’s given us opportunities to be involved in promoting healthy lifestyles right here on campus.

It’s been a challenging few years, but overall the course has been a truly rewarding experience.
