Course description

The impact of nutrition and exercise in optimising athletic performance and recovery from injury has

become increasingly clear and there is a growing demand for highly trained specialists. This exciting

Masters 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. The course is designed to develop your appreciation of the human body and its functions,

together with nutrition science and its role in promoting human health. You will consider the components

of fitness, including nutritional requirements, energy expenditure, body mass and body composition,

examining some of the common problems associated with general health and wellbeing, diet and

nutrition, exercise and sport performance. We will encourage a critical, analytical and flexible approach

to problem-solving in sport and exercise nutrition.
