Sport Nutrition

Sport nutrition is a dynamic discipline facilitating the transfer of knowledge between scientists and practitioners interested in the link between nutritional science, and sport and exercise sciences. Research studies investigating the interrelation between nutrition, physical activity and exercise in enhancement of sport performance, health and wellbeing, and prevention of disease have opened an incredible window into the enhancement of longevity and achievement of quality life, as a whole for the society. Bridging with the best world-wide research evidence in the area of sport nutrition, this Master programme encompasses a range of learning opportunities, cross-fertilising the theories and practices of nutrition, sport and exercise science and sport psychology with principles of the research methods, to enable students to undertake systematic enquiry into the human physiological and metabolic response to exercise and nutritional factors affecting this response. Besides, it also forms a systematic framework for the development of the skills required for the practice in sport and exercise nutrition. This programme is suitable for nutrition and/or sport-related science graduates and professionals interested in further expanding or advancing their knowledge and expertise in the practical application of sport nutrition with a granted input of solid theoretical foundation.
