This topical and market-led Masters programme commenced in 2004 and is delivered as a two-year part-time programme in Dublin, allowing students to study alongside personal and work commitments. This is achieved through modules being delivered over three days followed by eight weeks of home-based learning. Students travel from all over Ireland for the series of six long weekend modules which is then followed by their personal research project.
The programme attracts 20-25 students for each September annual intake from a wide range of ages and backgrounds - some newly qualified graduates, others are experienced exercise and nutrition professionals, whilst a number are looking to switch careers into this expanding area of work.
