About this program

Do you want to unlock the secret to peak performance in sport and exercise?

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. Teams and athletes all over the world now use sports nutritionists to help with their performance – do you want to be one of them?

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 you can choose to further develop your knowledge in biomechanics, physical activity or sports injury.

Whatever path you choose, you’ll put theory into practice by completing two professional work placements in the UK or abroad. You’ll have the opportunity to volunteer or study abroad and we’ll also give you first-hand experience of working with athletes through Trinity Performance, our sport and exercise science enterprise service for professional athletes.

Graduate opportunities
Our commitment to developing your employability skills means you’ll have the skills, knowledge and confidence to work in a wide range of sports industry roles. Many of our graduates work in elite sport as applied scientists, but they have also been successful in teaching, coaching, business and marketing roles thanks to the transferable skills that they’ve developed throughout the course.

Placement opportunities
We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You’ll complete two professional work placements, which will give you the chance to graduate with up to three months’ professional work experience without having to take a sandwich year out. Our students have completed placements at professional sports clubs such as Bolton Wanderers Football Club and Leeds Rhinos Rugby League Football Club, primary and secondary schools, human kinetics publishers, local authority health and wellbeing services, and Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food.
