Beyond the books
At the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences, we know that to be completely 'job ready' you need to know how to apply your skills in the real world.
To prepare you for your chosen career, you'll have plenty of opportunities to experience the workplace and even study abroad.
Our teaching and research is driven by the need to improve nutrition and promote physical activity. Without such strategies we face an increased risk of serious health conditions like heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
