NUTR2101 – Nutrition Science 97.9

This was a fantastic course. Veronique is a great lecturer and all the content was organized well and so interesting! The tutes are really good because you go over helpful exam questions, many of which are on the test in some form. It's easy to prepare for the midsem and final exams because you are told how/what to study.
Just beware there is a LOT of content and the semester I took we had one 3 hour lecture for the week (which was really long but made me attend and I think I learnt much more from being there). I definitely recommend going to lectures because you really are so much more engaged due to lack of distraction - and you can't be tempted to pause every half hour to make cups of tea.
Be sure to attend tutes too as they are SO helpful for the exam. The assignment was also great because it made the content relevant to everyone - we had to make a food diary and analyze our own macronutrient/micronutrient intake, then write a report analyzing our results. I learnt a lot in this course and it was probably the most interesting I've taken so far in my degree - maybe because I love nutrition more than other science, but the course structure and overall running were fantastic.
I bought the textbook and it's good to have, but you can get away with not having it. I barely used it... just for reference, occasional reading and some revision questions. But it might be good to get if you're considering more nutrition subjects/careers in the future.

This was an amazing subject to study. Veronique was a fantastic lecturer and tutor as she really cared about the results of the her students and how they progressed throughout the course. It was quite difficult in that it was a heavy workload content-wise (there was a lot of it!) however the structured way she planned her lessons made for easy revision and understanding. Definitely would recommend taking it if you're thinking about it!

Such a great course. Each week was really well planned out in regards to content and made logically flow throughout the semester. Veronique is very approachable and really helped understanding throughout the entire course. Due to its logical sequence and layout it is easy to understand and the way its taught means that it is relatively easy to get good marks in the subjects. Sometimes the tutorials went on a little long, but apart from that great course!

Nutrition Science not only was a really interesting and challenging course but also provided me with a different perspective of the relationship between food and health. All topics learned during the course were very well explained and tested often enough so that knowledge could be easily remembered. This is one of the courses from which I have learned the most in my entire degree and cannot be more grateful of having taken it.
