Course summary

This course is aimed at those who have an interest in sport, health and physical activity, and wish to deepen their understanding of the functioning of the human body.This particular pathway has been aligned with the scientific knowledge requirements and competencies detailed in the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr – a nationally recognised quality mark for working in Sports Nutrition).- Ranked in top 10 UK Sport Science courses for student satisfaction- Mapped to the SENr knowledge competencies at an introductory level.- Opportunity to become registered on Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs)- Use of dedicated fitness training facilities and exercise science laboratories.- Opportunities to work with clients in real-life situations.The first year of study is very similar to the other courses on the portfolio of Sport and Exercise Science degree pathways, and gives all students a grounding in the main principles of the subject area, along with the time to decide if they want to specialise in a particular pathway. The three core subjects of physiology, psychology and biomechanics form the foundations, with delivery comprising of a combination of theoretical lectures followed by an opportunity to apply that knowledge practically in our well-equipped sports science laboratories. Students will develop the hands-on skills required to use equipment such as: gas analysers, light gates, force platforms, motion analysis software, and body composition analysers.Alongside the core subjects, the first year gives students the opportunity to study the principles of training and exercise, and to gain vocational awards as Gym Instructors and Personal Trainers alongside their studies, if they wish. A grounding in the basics of sports nutrition is also developed, as well as an understanding of the scientific principles that underpin sports nutrition.In the second year, students continue to develop their knowledge in the foundational subjects of physiology, biomechanics and psychology, alongside developing their ability to understand and conduct research. Two further nutrition specific modules build on the knowledge gained in the first year, developing knowledge of dietary analysis, and nutrition for sport and exercise.During the final year, students deepen their knowledge in their specialist area by conducting an independent experimental research study of their own, alongside an in-depth review of the literature. Building on the first two years, students develop knowledge in specific areas such as extreme physiology, advanced training methods and applied sport psychology, whilst also further developing their sports nutrition knowledge through studying ergogenic aids to performance, and dietary planning.
