Course summary

Do you have a passion for exercise and activity? Are you interested in helping individuals to lead healthier lifestyles through nutrition and exercise? Are you hard-working and organised? The BSc (Hons) Nutrition and Exercise as Medicine could be the ideal course for you. Current statistics around obesity, diabetes, inactivity and poor dietary intakes are alarming, showing 29% of UK adults classified as obese and 20% and 14% of year 6 primary school children classified as obese and overweight respectively. In addition, 47 million adults in the UK are suffering with type II diabetes mellitus which emphasises the opportunity and demand for lifestyle-based interventions to facilitate change in morbidity and premature mortality rates.Those who are active and eat well have a decreased chance of developing lifestyle disorders and enjoy an enhanced physical, social and mental health status. Moreover, those who are suffering with disease, disorders, physical restrictions or impairments can benefit greatly from a change in behaviour, which sees them incorporating new approaches within their lifestyle. However, being able to recognise the importance of a healthy lifestyle right through to making positive and consistent behaviour change, requires specialised knowledge and skills.To ensure success, the practitioner must have an in-depth understanding of underpinning scientific principles yet also be skilled in advocating and incorporating change into a person’s daily schedule. For this reason, the art and science of exercise prescription and dietary intervention is tremendously complex and takes years to learn and hone. You will learn the skills and competencies associated with all aspects of exercise prescription and dietary intervention through a combination of theoretical and practical applications.You will:- You will undertake applied work in the workplace, schools and clinical settings to equip you to prescribe exercise- and nutrition-based strategies for the prevention and treatment of ill-health- You will study on the UK’s first BSc (Hons) in 'Nutrition and Exercise as Medicine'- You will undertake vocational awards during your studies, in order to gain relevant industry experience in ‘Gym Instructing’ and ‘Personal Training’- You will have the opportunity to undertake a practitioner placement (150 hours) during your final year, which will give you valuable learning experience and enhanced employability.
