MSc - Master of Science
Parkgate Road Campus
This course is for those who wish to develop practical skills and apply their expertise in this rewarding area of study.
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.
