Description

The impact of nutrition on sport and exercise performance is complex with a detailed understanding of the many components required. Such interactions have been developed from extensive research, providing the basis for the systematic application of nutritional strategies aimed at optimising performance. 

With well established courses across a range of sport and exercise disciplines, we have the facilities and expertise to enable Masters students to gain a great insight into both the theoretical underpinnings and the practical application of nutrition in the sport and exercise context.

By the end of the course, students who successfully complete the taught portion will be eligible to apply for entry to the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr) as a "graduate member" and will have attained many of the competencies necessary to achieve full registration with SENr*.

*Subject to SENr accreditation
