“I loved studying nutrition on my first degree, so continuing onto my masters was the perfect option for me. I was able to work with athletes and clubs around the UK - applying what I was learning into practice. I now use my skills to help athletes meet their nutritional needs and achieve their peak potential.

MODULES & LEARNING

This module focuses on the design of research projects as a way of answering questions and solving 'real world' problems in a reliable and valid manner.

This modules aims to develop an understanding of how to apply research into a range of professional contexts associated with sport and exercise science.

This module aims to develop a good theoretical understanding of the current sport nutrition necessary to become a good sport and exercise practitioner. It introduces the general principles, concepts and underpinning theory in nutrition necessary for the development of nutrition strategies.

You will develop a critical understanding of the metabolic and endocrine responses to different types of exercise, their time course and scope for training and detraining adaptations. It will also facilitate the development of laboratory data collection skills.

You will gain knowledge, understanding and critical awareness of measurement and evaluation tools and techniques in sport and exercise nutrition. This module will also enable you to develop a personal CPD plan and critically reflect on the process of measurement and evaluation in sport and exercise nutrition.

On completion you will be able to use contemporary research to explore the complex interactions and relationships between dietary manipulation strategies and specific ergogenic aids/food supplements on metabolism, sports performance and health.

The quality of our research is evident in the outstanding results achieved in sport-related studies in the Research Assessment Exercise completed in 2014 in which Leeds Beckett came second in the countryfor sport and exercise science, leisure and tourism.
