Why study Applied Sports Nutrition

Postgraduate study in Applied Sports Nutrition will not only upgrade your academic and professional skills, but allow you to practice skills and competencies needed to work as a sports nutrition practitioner.

There is currently a high demand for specialisation in the field of applied sports and exercise nutrition. This high demand has partly been driven by employers seeking nutritionists who work within sport to have a higher specialist degree, the continued professional development requirements from professional bodies and be on the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr).

The course is accredited by the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr) as one of their approved programmes and facilitates the preparation of those wanting to join the Register.

Practical experience opportunities are encouraged throughout the degree.

This allows students to have a good work/life balance whilst undertaking this course.
