Nutrition Futures 2018 Conference will be a diverse and interactive experience for all nutrition science students and graduates or prespective students intending to study food and nutrition or dietetics related subjects, created by the Nutrition Society Student Section in partnership with the University of Newcastle.

Conference attendees will have the opportunity to develop essential skills to help build their career from learning how to effectively network to how to create a job seeking strategy within a developmental and supportive environment.  As well as receiving career support, conference attendees will gain knowledge across a range of disciplines and areas of nutritional science research.

The conference will include a careers panel enabling engagement with representatives from the charity, media and communications, sports, political, industry, and academic sectors, as well as an opportunity for authors to practice presenting their research or research proposal to gain invaluable feedback and to gain collaboration.

Who should attend the conference?

Nutrition Futures 2018 is suitable for undergraduates and postgraduates studying or having studied on nutrition related courses, as well as prospective students intending to study food and nutrition or dietetics related subjects. 

Who are the Nutrition Society Student Section?

The Student Section is formed of students from across the UK and Ireland who have volunteered to represent the students in their geographical area and their own University, creating a direct link with their peers and the Nutrition Society.  The Section has two co-chairs who represent students on The Nutrition Society Advisory Council to highlight views and opinions on behalf of nutrition students from across the country. Working alongside the Section Co-Chairs, the Student Section helps promote the benefits of Nutrition Society membership and organises the annual Student Conference (now renamed as Nutrition Futures 2018), as well as networking and career development sessions during other Society events.
