Overview

Nutrition has profound effects on both human health and athletic performance. So we have based this course on the latest scientific research and contemporary practice. Our staff come from a wide range of sporting and nutrition backgrounds. 

They conduct first-class research and bring it to the classroom and some are actively involved in coaching. To provide you with subject specialist knowledge we also invite guest speakers from:

  • industry
  • other universities
  • research organisations.

The research groups and consultancies have strong links with Oxfordshire hospitals, elite athletes and food organisations. 

The Applied Sport and Exercise Nutrition programme at the Oxford Brookes University gives you opportunities to conduct internal and external research projects. As well as develop potential career opportunities.

Career prospects

Many sports are becoming increasingly professional in their approach to training and nutrition. For example, many sports clubs now employ full-time nutrition consultants. Career prospects outside sport are also exciting.

The NHS offers an increasing number of opportunities for students with specialist training in exercise nutrition to support GP referral schemes and other healthy living programmes. 

The growing awareness of health within society, coupled with misconceptions of the relationship between physical activity, nutrition and health has led to an increasing demand for graduates who can deliver evidence-based solutions and advice at all levels.
