Overview

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-recognized. Teams and athletes all over the world now use sports nutritionists to help with their performance.

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 in the Sport and Exercise Sciences (Sports Nutrition) program at Leeds Trinity University, you can choose to continue to specialize 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.
