Sport Biomedicine and Nutrition focuses on the scientific study of all aspects of lifestyle and approaches to improving health. This includes looking at the role of exercise, health promotion and nutrition in sports communities.
Students will be equipped with the skills to improve health, fitness and performance by using their knowledge to understand and predict how the body responds and adapts to exercise. Sports nutritionists consider the impact that lifestyle has on health and suggest appropriate changes in exercise and diet to help prevent disease.
If you have an interest in sport and science, and want to help communities live a healthier lifestyle then Sport Biomedicine and Nutrition could be for you!
What will I learn?
Students will understand the interactions between our bodies, minds and the environment in which we live. You will study science-based modules such as human physiology, nutrition, biochemistry and psychology, all with a focus on sport and exercise. There is also the opportunity for you to take a Professional Training Year and develop your skills in a real-life working environment, in between your studies.
Graduates have gone on to careers within the Sport and Leisure industry, NHS, National Sports Councils and Sporting National Governing Bodies. Others have also been employed in the pharmaceutical and food industries or carried on with further study.
