Course content

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).

Our Master's degree in Applied Sports Nutrition is delivered by an effective mix of experienced sports nutrition practitioners and academics, ensuring practical skills and competencies are enhanced.

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. The unique weekend and block-week timetable at St Mary’s means students can organise study around their personal schedule of work and leisure. This allows students to have a good work/life balance whilst undertaking this course.

The University is arguably one of London's top performing sports institutions, providing a comprehensive sports development programme that focuses on performance sport, coaching, events and recreational opportunities.
