What dietary requirements does a professional footballer need to take his game to the next level? Which foods does a 100m sprinter need to refuel after a race? What exercise would suit someone with a heart condition? The global trend in the manipulation of nutrient intake to enhance performance and the health of exercising individuals has grown exponentially. Matching the physiological demands with relevant dietary needs is a fast-growing area of sport nutrition. All of these factors are creating a demand for dynamic, innovative nutrition graduates. We’ve designed our sport and exercise nutrition course to address the increasing awareness of the impact of nutrition on sport and exercise performance and the growing need for employment in the area. You’ll examine the complex relationships between diet, health, physical wellbeing and performance whilst also gaining experience in the skills required to work in the field of sport and exercise, such as providing specialist advice on healthy eating, conducting dietary surveys and being an advocate of change. Our sport and exercise nutrition degree also provides the option of spending an extra year working in a partner organisation on placement. Features and benefits
