A degree in Sport and Exercise Science is your route into a future career in sports performance working with elite athletes, or in health & well-being working with clinical populations. Our course is endorsed by the British Association of Sport & Exercise, with an interdisciplinary perspective, focusing on psychology, physiology, biomechanics, performance analysis, nutrition and strength & conditioning.
For much of the time you will study in small teaching groups alongside tutors who are active researchers at the cutting edge of Sport & Exercise Science. Teaching takes place in our multi-million Health & Sport Sciences complex, where you will learn to conduct complete physiological, psychological and biomechanical profiles of both sports performance and health. By studying in small teaching groups in these applied settings, your learning will be promoted and you will develop essential practical skills that form the basis of a career in the field. You will be taught by and study.
By the end of your studies you will have the skills and knowledge to confidently and independently develop training programmes to maximise sports performance, enhance skill acquisition and improve the health of diseased populations.For more details and information about this course visit:

Nutrition is becoming a vital discipline as the awareness of the importance of healthy eating grows. Nutritionists have a key role in helping us understand how diet helps maintain health and prevents disease. Nutritionists work in a diverse and wide range of professional roles providing and implementing evidence-based nutritional guidelines, public health nutrition strategies, and developing the safe, sustainable, and healthy foods of the future.
Our Nutrition degree is focused on developing the practical, professional and research skills needed to develop a successful career as a professional nutritionist in various roles across the public health and commercial food sectors (as well as preparation for further study or pursuing a professional career in dietetics).
The curriculum includes a focus on nutritional science; the food supply chain; the social and behavioral sciences; health and wellbeing; and the importance of professional conduct. You will be taught in our new Health Sciences building, which features specialist laboratories and equipment dedicated to the study of food, nutrition and health.
You will learn from a highly committed team of research-active UK registered nutritionists (supported with additional expertise in food science, the biological sciences, and public health). Our staff have a wide range of practical experience and are enthusiastic about both the academic subject and the quality of your student experience.For more details and information about this course visit:
