Course summary

This course will offer you a thorough and scientific understanding of sport, exercise and nutrition.With the recent success of the 2016 Olympic Games and the current government focus upon physical activity and health, this certainly is a key time to get involved in sport and exercise science. In choosing the BSc (Hons) Sport, Exercise and Nutrition degree you are taking your first steps into what is a fascinating and developing field that opens up many career opportunities. The multi-disciplinary nature of the programme is designed to enable you to appreciate and evaluate sport, exercise and nutritional disciplines from an informed and inquisitive viewpoint. You’ll learn about the basics of bioenergetics of exercise and human physiology in your first year which you will then apply to the field of sport and exercise nutrition in your second and third year. Your enthusiasm for sport and exercise nutrition will be developed through the study of contemporary practice and up to date scientific concepts. This will give you an insight into the vital role nutrition can play in optimising sport performance, whilst also recognising that those who exercise recreationally and for health purposes can also benefit highly from appropriate nutritional interventions. You will learn about contemporary issues within sport and exercise nutrition and the inter-relationship of these concepts within food marketing and policy disciplines.The scientific content of the curriculum is aligned with the scientific knowledge requirements and competencies detailed in the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr) and during your studies you’ll be encouraged to critically evaluate existing theory and practice as well as carry out your own independent research.You’ll also have the option of a work placement in a related area so you can put your knowledge and skills into practice.As a graduate, you’ll leave with a detailed academic understanding of sport, exercise and nutrition as well as the vocational and practical skills you’ll need for your future career, including problem-solving, IT and communication skills.
