You’ll study the core components of sport and exercise sciences, such as psychology, physiology and biomechanics, but you’ll specialise in sports nutrition. 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, you can choose to continue to specialise 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.
Postgraduate courses are a great way to enhance your skills further and really specialise within an area. Following this course, you will be qualified to study at postgraduate level in areas such as MA Sport Management, MSc Health and Wellbeing, Masters by Research programme and PGCE courses, which we provide here at Leeds Trinity.
