The Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity department is part of the School of Sport and Recreation at AUT.
AUT’s behavioural nutrition and physical activity programme creates graduates that work in a diverse range of fields related to the promotion of healthy lifestyles. Our expert staff bring first-hand research experience to their teaching, ensuring that our students develop the advanced skills and knowledge to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and populations.
Undergraduate study in behavioural nutrition and physical activity will give you a solid grounding in this area.
We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across sport and recreation.More about our research
The AUT community gardens were founded in 2019 as part of the Lifestyle Nutrition course in the Bachelor of Sport and Recreation. Students completing the Bachelor of Sport and Recreation in Exercise Science and Nutrition were given the opportunity to immerse themselves in a collaborative, sustainable environment and grow their own food as part of the course.
