Exercise & Nutrition Science

This topical and market-led Masters programme commenced in 2004 and is delivered by the University of Chester as a two-year part-time programme in Dublin. This highly flexible programme allows students to study alongside personal and work commitments which is achieved through modules being delivered over three days followed by eight weeks of home-based learning. Students travel from all over Ireland for the series of six long weekend modules (Fri – Sun) which is then followed by their personal research project.

The programme attracts 20-25 students for each September annual intake from a wide range of ages and backgrounds - some newly qualified graduates, others are experienced exercise and nutrition professionals, whilst a number are looking to switch careers into this expanding area of work.
