Course summary

Our course is aimed at health professionals and graduates who wish to extend their knowledge, develop practical skills and apply their expertise in this popular area of study. It is also designed to help facilitate a career switch for others to work in the field of exercise and nutrition. The ENS 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, is academically stimulating with an applied focus and is 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.

Assessment method

Each module requires 200 hours of study and is assessed via a 4,000-word written assignment or its equivalent – e.g. poster presentation. There are no examinations. Following the completion of six taught modules, if you are an MSc student you will be required to undertake a personal research project.
