Overview

The Master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition is being held on site in Tartu. The curriculum provides broad knowledge of the biochemistry, physiology, and metabolism which underpins clinical provision. The study format includes lectures, seminars and practical work. The founder and lead lecturer of the programme is Professor Alastair Forbes, who previously established a clinical nutrition course at UCL, London.

Lecture rooms are fully equipped with modern technology, and the research laboratories meet the highest standards. Students can use the library of the University of Tartu and a wide range of electronic resources.
The teaching faculty represents a full range of clinical specialties as well as mainstream nutrition, and to complement this, we are inviting a number of leading international experts, which will help students to form affiliations with some of Europe’s best nutrition centres.
Students will be encouraged to participate in the Lifelong Learning Program of the European Nutrition Society (ESPEN). Thanks to this programme, it is possible to establish links with other graduate students, not only in Europe but all over the world.
