About

Career

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 theoretical basis of the course will also be ideal if you wish to pursue further academic studies and move to a PhD in nutrition or exercise biochemistry. The translational skills taught on the course are applicable to working in the community and improving the health and fitness of the general population. The main focus of the programme, however, is on working with elite performers and investigating how nutrition can maximise the health, body composition and performance of athletes.
