Show your passion

Make sure your personal statement gets across your passion for Food and Human Nutrition. What excites you about nutrition and why are you interested in studying on this course?

Provide evidence

Wherever possible, back up your statements with evidence. Show off you skills and personal attributes with relevant work experience and extra-curricular activities
