Graduate in Human Nutrition BSc Honours
Charlotte Webber became interested in nutrition whilst at college where she studied sports and exercise science and covered a module in nutrition. She knew she wanted to further her knowledge in nutrition.
While applying to London universities, she felt that The University of Westminster had a keen interest in student development and offered a more one to one development. In addition there was lots of support and encouragement from lecturers and tutors.
Her first year at the university was initially overwhelming; she gained a foundation of knowledge of human nutrition and role of essential and non-essential nutrients in the body. During the second year she continued to develop knowledge covering analysis of nutritional data, advanced nutrition and physiology.
The final year was her most enjoyable as she prepared for her research project. She said "We were able to develop a research project, recruit subjects and analyse data in order to provide a scientific outcome".
After graduating from University of Westminster with an Upper Second Class Honours degree in Human Nutrition, she began work as a clinical assistant at The Royal Free Hospital within the Nutrition and Dietetic Department. She enjoys her role of supporting dietitians reviewing patients needing oral nutritional support very much.
Charlotte is a member of the Nutrition Society, which enables her to keep herself updated on nutrition research.
Charlotte believes that hard work and goal settings as well as keeping track of your own progress are keys to achieve success.
