Entry requirements

Normally a First Class or Upper Second Class Honours Degree in a relevant subject such as Sports Science, Biology and Human Biology, Health Sciences, Physiological Sciences, or other related fields (students with a 2:2 in these subjects may also be given consideration on an individual basis). Due to the diverse nature of this subject area, suitably qualified (an undergraduate degree) candidates from applied backgrounds (e.g. professional sports coaches, occupational therapists, physiotherapists etc.) are encouraged to apply and will be given consideration on an individual basis.

On occasion, the programme may admit non-graduates whose lack of formal qualifications is compensated for by relevant professional experience. The selection of applicants will be based on provided evidence of professional experience and interviews after short-listing by award director.

In certain circumstances the University also permits study that students have already carried out at Postgraduate level to be taken into account

Course content

Sport & Exercise Nutrition is a dynamic discipline facilitating the transfer of knowledge between scientists and practitioners interested in the link between nutritional science, and sport and exercise sciences. Research studies investigating the interrelation between nutrition, physical activity and exercise in enhancement of sport performance, health and wellbeing, and prevention of disease have opened an incredible window into the enhancement of longevity and achievement of quality life, as a whole for the society.

Bridging with the best world-wide research evidence in the area of sport nutrition, this Master programme encompasses a range of learning opportunities, cross-fertilising the theories and practices of nutrition, sport and exercise science and sport psychology with principles of the research methods, to enable students to undertake systematic enquiry into the human physiological and metabolic response to exercise and nutritional factors affecting this response.

Besides, it also forms a systematic framework for the development of the skills required for the practice in sport and exercise nutrition. This programme is suitable for nutrition and/or sport-related science graduates and professionals interested in further expanding or advancing their knowledge and expertise in the practical application of sport nutrition with a granted input of solid theoretical foundation.
