Course content

This course offers the unique opportunity to study a sport and exercise nutrition programme as delivered from within a Nutrition department, which focuses on the study and application of evidence-based, practical sport and exercise nutrition. You will examine the evidence surrounding nutrition, performance and health whilst also gaining experience in the nutritional and physiological skills required to work within the field of sport and exercise nutrition.

The programme will offer the opportunity to undertake research within either an applied practitioner or laboratory-based environment, with additional potential to apply for vocational experience in performance sport, physical activity and/or health fields. Further, the programme offers the opportunity to obtain a vocational anthropometric analysis qualification (ISAK) within taught content. Through the underpinning theoretical content of nutrition, physiology and sports performance, alongside the vocational skills embedded throughout the course, this programme is designed to provide graduates with training which will allow them to pursue employment in applied sports nutrition, research, health and industry.

MSc Sport Nutrition is currently working towards accreditation with SENr, which will allow graduates to join the register as Graduate Nutritionists
