Course Summary

This exciting new master’s aims to foster an evidence-based approach to understanding the science and application of sports nutrition and exercise for a diverse range of individuals to improve their health, fitness or sporting performance. It will appeal to dietitians, nutritionists and sport and exercise science graduates. Over the past decade, the impact of nutrition and exercise in optimising athletic performance and recovery from injury has become increasingly clear and there has been a growing demand for highly trained specialists in this field. This multidisciplinary course draws together a broad range of biosciences subject matter within the areas of sport, exercise physiology, health and nutrition.

Achievement of learning outcomes in the modules is assessed by a combination of coursework assignments, oral presentations, video presentations, a practical portfolio and a dissertation. On completion, you should be able to: critically analyse, evaluate and interpret knowledge and practice in sport and exercise nutrition; formulate and present a critical argument using a variety of methods (e.g. presentation, essay) that would stand up to critical review and scrutiny in academic and professional settings; exhibit the skills of critical reasoning in relation to application of sports nutrition; and critically analyse key nutritional, anthropometric and physiological assessments.
