Course content

Applied Sports Nutrition will, not only upgrade your academic and professional skills, but will 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).

Applied Sports Nutrition at St Mary's is delivered by an effective mix of experienced sports nutrition practitioners and academics, ensuring practical skills and competencies are enhanced.

The course facilitates the preparation of those wanting to join the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr) and 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 gifts students with 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.
