Sport and Exercise Nutrition

This module aims to provide an overview of nutrition towards exercise and sports performance through the human life cycle. Topics include energy balance and nutrient requirements for children through to seniors; nutrition recommendations to enhance performance and recovery in strength, endurance, and team sports; and nutritional considerations for special populations such as diabetics and vegans.

The module also aims to address issues concerning ergogenic supplementation, eating disorders, and nutritional assessment of individuals. The topics will be taught using examples of athletes at various life stages along with case studies from the sporting world to provide in-context applications of sport nutrition principles   

Sport and Exercise Nutrition is a module selected from the Specialist Diploma in Sport Science and Wellness.  It enables participants to acquire new skills or deepen relevant skills without the need to pursue a full specialist diploma. As this is a stackable course, participants may choose to complete the remaining modules within the validity period, of 2 years, to be awarded the full Specialist Diploma qualification.
