Course summary

Diet and nutrition significantly affect sport performance. The food and fluid which an athlete drinks before, during and after exercise affects health, body mass and body composition, as well as performance in, and, recovery from exercise. The aim of this programme is to provide suitable academic training relating on the foundation of biosciences for the study of sport and exercise nutrition (SEN). This includes exercise physiology, nutrition, sport and exercise nutrition and exercise metabolism. Work based learning will be a major focus of the programme highlighting the wealth of professional roles within sport and exercise nutrition practice. It is expected that following completion of this UG students will wish to progress to complete a one year postgraduate qualification in SEN (at Ulster/other institution) leading to professional accreditation with the British Dietetic Association, Sport and Exercise Nutrition (BDA SENr) allowing them to practice as a Sport and Exercise Nutritonist with recreational, semi-professional or elite athletes. For further info on accreditation in SEN please see: https://www.bda.uk.com/membership/membership-categories/senr.html and https://www.ulster.ac.uk/courses/202122/sport-and-exercise-nutrition-27110
