Overview

Learn to help athletes and physically active people improve their performance through exercise physiology and nutritional practices.

The general guidelines that used to influence an individual's sport and exercise performance have become vague and outdated. So here you'll study a dynamic, evidence-based, situation-specific degree which facilitates performance enhancement.

In this Sport and Exercise Nutrition (Hons) offered at The University of Hull you'll refine your understanding of nutrition, exercise physiology and psychology. You'll transfer the theory into real-world practical situations in facilities including our Health and Human Performance Laboratory, Exercise Physiology Laboratories, using showcase catering facilities and on work placement.

Hull designed this programme to align with the competency requirements and professional standards set by the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr) and have applied to have the undergraduate degree endorsed by them. This course prepares you to become a sport and exercise nutritionist not just in the UK, but further afield – thanks to our accreditation by the Hong Kong Nutritionists Society (HKNS).

Your future prospects

  • Performance Nutritionist
  • Health promotion specialist
  • Personal trainer

We have developed links with local industry and as a result students graduating from this programme have the opportunity to work within a variety of clinical settings within the NHS, food industry or within professional sport. Some graduates even go on to set up their own business.

If you wish there is also plenty of scope for postgraduate study and this programme provides a strong foundation for progression into SENr-accredited MSc degrees or even Dietetics.
