Course content

This course is for those who wish to develop practical skills and apply their expertise in exercise and nutrition science; it is aimed at health professionals and graduates who want to extend their knowledge in this popular area of study, and for those who want to make a career switch to work in the field of exercise and nutrition.

The course was established in 1993, and its content is mapped against the competencies of nationally recognised professional bodies such as the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr), Register for Exercise Professionals (REPs) and the International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK). It is characterised by its multidisciplinary approach to the study of nutrition in relation to exercise and sport, and is academically stimulating, underpinned by evidence-based practice.

A key feature of this course is the application of theory to practice and in addition to the lectures, there are practical sessions, workshops, and the opportunity to undertake a placement within a health, sport, or exercise setting. The MSc is delivered by a team of leading academics and both national and international leaders in exercise and nutrition. This enables graduates to leave with the most up-to-date and relevant knowledge in the field.

Students that do not wish to study the full MSc programme, can choose to study to a PGDip/PGCert level instead.
