MSc Sport Nutrition


Sport nutrition is an increasingly vital part of elite sport and there has never been a better time to specialise, as recreational competitive sport and elite performance sport grow increasingly popular in the UK. The University of Stirling is one of only six universities worldwide approved to provide this Masters conversion course in sports nutrition.

This Masters degree focuses on the science behind sports nutrition and is designed specifically for students who already have an International Olympic Committee (IOC) Diploma in sports nutrition and want to further their knowledge.

To complete the course, you’ll be asked to plan, conduct and write a research project in Sports Nutrition, and you’ll receive high-quality training and support from our expert staff as you study. By the time you graduate, you’ll have an even greater knowledge of sports nutrition and a clear understanding of how to put your research into practice.

Course objectives

This course is designed to expand on the knowledge you’ve acquired whilst studying for your IOC Sports Nutrition diploma. You’ll complete a dissertation on an approved topic of your choice while gaining a deeper understanding of the science behind the subject, a broader network of expertise and an enhanced ability to share your findings with the wider world.
