This Sport Nutrition Masters programme offered by Liverpool John Moores University opens up a world of scientific innovation, research and the related application of specially designed nutritional support that can help sportspeople to overcome setbacks and achieve their goals.


This Sport Nutrition Masters programme offered by Liverpool John Moores University Masters course you will learn to make decisions in complex and unpredictable situations, and you will ultimately contribute to the essential support framework demanded by the sport industry for success.

On successful completion of the course, you will understand how to deal with complex issues within nutrition, both systematically and creatively, and make sound judgements in the absence of incomplete data. You will also develop essential skills in communicating and implementing your recommendations for clients as well as specialist and non-specialist audiences.


Although most graduates pursue accreditation with SENr and seek work in the field of sport nutrition, the degree is also ideally suited for Strength and Conditioning Practitioners who are looking to increase their knowledge and applied skills in nutrition, as well as those interested in using exercise nutrition to improve the health of the general public.

The translational skills taught on the course are applicable to working in the community and improving the health and fitness of the general population.
