Context

Few UK universities offer the unique combination of sport and nutrition at postgraduate level and we are confident that our course represents the most academically advanced of its kind.

Course Description

The course is based on the latest scientific research and best contemporary practice. It is designed to fulfil the needs of those who wish to work with athletes as well as those who want to improve health, fitness or exercise performance.

Course mode

Whether you're looking to enhance your career prospects or planning to return to work after a career break, we offer a flexible part-time study programme which enables you to study around work or family commitments. Since a third of our students choose to study part-time, you'll benefit from the range of backgrounds and experiences of fellow students. 

Study level

Choose a level of study that suits you - MSc (180 credits), PGDip (120 credits) or PGCert (60 credits) or simply select from our wide range of individual modules - ideal as refresher training or to suit employers looking to provide staff development opportunities in specialist areas.  

Example module

Our Sport and Exercise Nutrition in Practice module draws upon the experience of experts currently involved in providing nutritional support for people who participate in sport and exercise. We use the expertise of guest lecturers in addition to the core teaching team. Strategies that focus on selected behavioural manipulation techniques known to enhance healthy dietary strategies will be covered. The module will provide graduates with the necessary skills to meet the challenges faced by contemporary sport and exercise nutritionists.

Support

We provide a wide variety of support to our part-time students including a dedicated academic advisor, our Upgrade service which provides support with writing assignments and online access to your study programme through your Personal Information Portal (PIP). 

Consultancies

Our consultancies at Brookes namely the Human Performance Unit and Clinicial Exercise and Rehabilitation (CLEAR) Unit provide relevant work experience opportunities for our students. For example, a number of our postgraduate students worked with the Oxford University Boat race team collating blood samples and testing lactate.

This MSc costs £3,010 per annum in part-time mode.  We are pleased to offer scholarships to part-time MSc degree applicants - visit our website for further details.
