Course summary

Do you want to unlock the secret to peak performance in sport and exercise?Teams and athletes all over the world now use sports nutritionists to help with their performance – do you want to be one of them?Peak performances are not achieved by accident. The margins between success and failure are frequently very small, which is why the impact of sports nutrition in providing significant gains in performance is well-recognised.You’ll study the core components of sport and exercise sciences, such as psychology, physiology and biomechanics, but you’ll specialise in sports nutrition.You’ll understand the impact that nutrition can have on athletic performance, exploring areas such as food, dietary recommendations, management and planning, ergogenic aids, fluid balance and sports drinks for optimum sports performance.In your final year, you can choose to continue to specialise in Sports Nutrition or to develop your knowledge in biomechanics, physical activity or sports injury. Whatever path you choose, you’ll put theory into practice by completing professional work placements in the UK or abroad.You’ll also have the opportunity to volunteer or study abroad and we’ll give you first-hand experience of working with athletes through Trinity Performance, our sport and exercise science enterprise service for professional athletes.This course is endorsed by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) - the professional body for sport and exercise sciences in the UK.**Professional placements**Our students have completed placements at professional sports clubs including Bolton Wanderers Football Club and Leeds Rhinos Rugby League Club, as well as in primary and secondary schools, Human Kinetics publishers and local authority health and wellbeing services.**Career opportunities**Our graduates have gone on to work in sports nutrition, in elite sport as applied scientists and in research in sport.
