Teaching method

Throughout the Master's programme, students encounter a variety of complementary teaching methods: classroom lectures, tutoring, laboratory work and immersion in a professional environment.
The course programme is designed to enable an excellent level of training in research through experimentation.

The theory teaching, monitoring in the laboratory and supervision of the thesis are performed by research professionals.
Professional focus in human nutrition: the programme is organised so as to leave a period of time almost exclusively devoted to the production of a laboratory experiment dissertation, which is essential to enable the learner to become an integral part of a team and to allow adequate monitoring by the supervisors.

The final stage of the programme includes an introductory work placement, intended to enable the students to face the world of employment that they will have to deal with on completion of the training; the various courses will also provide the opportunity for contact with key representatives of the world of employment during the training.

The critical mindset will be developed in the field, which is necessary in view of the amount of misleading information found on the Internet or through inadequate communication networks in the field of nutrition and health; this competence will be acquired by being faced with real-life cases to be dealt with in several courses.
