Learn to help athletes and physically active people improve their performance through exercise physiology and nutritional practices. The general guidelines that used to influence an individual's sport and exercise performance have become vague and outdated. So here you'll study a dynamic, evidence-based, situation-specific degree which facilitates performance enhancement. You'll refine your understanding of nutrition, exercise physiology and psychology. You'll transfer the theory into real-world practical situations in facilities including our Health and Human Performance Laboratory, Exercise Physiology Laboratories, using showcase catering facilities and on work placement. This programme is accredited by the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENR) and abides by the SENR competency framework. It also prepares you to become a sport and exercise nutritionist not just in the UK, but further afield – thanks to our accreditation by the Hong Kong Nutritionists Society (HKNS). Official Team GB partners Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB? Our united belief is that anyone, with the right opportunities ahead and a dedicated team behind, can achieve extraordinary things. This is what our partnership with Team GB is built on. Extraordinary is in you – and we’ll help you find it. What does this mean for you? It means that whether you’re studying sports science, or marketing, or logistics, or healthcare, or engineering, you’ll be able to gain invaluable experience through this unique partnership. We are working with Team GB to create opportunities for volunteering and work experience, to get involved with meet-and-greet sessions with Olympians, host on-campus talks from guest speakers and so much more. Some of our students recently helped Team GB athletes get their kit ready to compete in preparation for the Minsk 2019 European Games. It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else. Find out more at hull.ac.uk/teamgb
