WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Your main study themes are:

  • Exercise Physiology: How the body adapts and responds to exercise and strength training. We will examine exercise in different populations, using appropriate physiological assessment techniques to differentiate between acute reactions occurring during exercise and late onset adaptations that occur with training. You will then apply this understanding to critically evaluate training schedules for individuals at differing stages of fitness or competition.
  • Nutrition: The science of nutrition and the use of dietary strategies to enhance sport and exercise performance
  • Research Skills: Key aspects of scientific method will be developed. Types of information, finding appropriate information for scientific purposes, and how to use this information. Experimental design, analysis and presentation of data.

This multidisciplinary course draws together a broad range of biosciences subject matter within the areas of sport, exercise physiology, health and nutrition.

Content has been designed to develop your appreciation of the human body and its functions, together with nutrition science and its role in promoting human health so that you can apply this knowledge to develop appropriate dietary advice and exercise programmes.

We will consider the components of fitness, including nutritional requirements, energy expenditure, body mass and body composition, examining some of the common problems associated with general health and wellbeing, diet and nutrition, exercise and sport performance. These include diets, hydration and supplements, for example.

Covering how to scientifically measure nutritional requirements and dietary allowances of macronutrients, micronutrients and other metabolically active components of food such as fibre. We also consider the negative effects of things like food additives, tannins or drugs and how ethnic and culture may affect practical advice on foods, meals and menus.

As well as subject-specific knowledge, we will encourage a critical, analytical and flexible approach to problem-solving in sport and exercise nutrition. You will systematically and creatively explore complex issues, such as physical activity, nutrition and obesity, and elite physiological support through a variety of case studies, laboratory sessions and group work.

Our aim is to effectively prepare you for professional employment, so we focus on providing enhanced practical and professional skills through a combination of lectures, laboratory and field sessions and case studies. The nature of the course also enables topical aspects to be discussed, for example, the latest popular supplement for sports people or fad diet.

You are also required to complete in-depth research study in the area of sport and exercise science, so will receive training in research methods, including data analysis in both research and applied practice.
