This accreditation process recognises that graduates from this course have attained the necessary applied knowledge competencies, as recognised by the Sport and Exercise Nutrition industry. As a Master of Science in Sport Exercise and Nutrition student at Northumbria, you will develop the skills and knowledge needed to work in multi-disciplinary teams and high-performance environments. You will learn how to work with people from multi-cultural and diverse background providing dietary advice whilst also considering important lifestyle considerations. For example, you will be encouraged to study contemporary practices that promote sustainability such as plant-based diets and address the dietary needs of special population groups such as the young, female and ethnically diverse athletes. During the second part of the course you will have the opportunity choose from a range of module options that provides flexibility to part-tailor your programme to meet your needs, interests and career aspirations. For instance, if diversifying your skillset is what you want, you might choose to study ‘Physiology of Sport Performance’ as a route to further study, applying physiological assessments and interventions to support the athletic development process. Or, you might have an ambition to work in high performance sport and choose ‘Working with Elite Performers’ where you will study and work in multi-disciplinary contexts akin to a high-performance environment.
