You will also study one or two other subjects in year 2 according to your interests: see Degrees in Arts, Science and Social Sciences.

Years 3 and 4: If you progress to Honours, in third year you will study the physiological adaptations to exercise, nutrition and energetics, focusing on the cardio-respiratory and skeletomuscular systems; complete specialist courses in statistics and molecular biology techniques.

In fourth year, you will specialise in nutrition, and sports and exercise nutrition. We would emphasise that the programme is primarily aimed at producing good nutritionists. In our view, the most able sports nutritionists are those with the best grounding in the subject of nutrition.
