Course summary

Why Sport Exercise and Nutrition? Eating healthily and being physically active are important for wellbeing, and good nutrition can help to achieve optimal performance in sport. Nutrition is increasingly important in elite sport, personal training, and community-based initiatives, so this course could lead to an exciting and rewarding career. This course could give you the skills to work as a sports nutritionist, physical activity coordinator, health advisor, sports development officer, personal trainer, exercise referral specialist, or after further training, a teacher in educational settings. How will you learn? * You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of biological sciences, nutrition, exercise and health, and sports performance. You'll study anatomy and physiology, fitness conditioning, digestion and metabolism, and psychology. * In your second year, you’ll go on a work placement, which will provide you with the opportunity to apply your skills in a real-world context. * You’ll use excellent facilities, including our nutrition food science labs, sport and exercise science labs, and our sport and fitness centre.* This course was the first degree in the UK to be ‘approved’ by the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr). * Additionally, this course is also applying for endorsement with the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA), which will allow us to offer industry qualifications within the degree, including NVQ Level 2 Award in Gym Instruction and NVQ Level 3 Personal Trainer Award.
