MNU has given me the most relevant information needed for my career out of all of the courses I have previously done, including my Sport Science degree and Sports Nutrition Postgraduate degree.

The quality of the learning environment does not compare to anything else; MNU has been the one to fill so many gaps in my knowledge and give loads of practical insights that have and continue to help me massively – the value of the course is unbelievable and I’m so glad I did it!

Whilst doing MNU, I got a job at Sheffield Hallam Uni as their Lead Performance Nutritionist, which is amazing and I can’t believe my luck. I know MNU has helped me so much this past year and given me more confidence to even be in a position to go for jobs like that.

Whilst working at Hallam, I’ve also got some sports nutrition work with Swim England, as well as external work from GB Ice Hockey and a youth weightlifting club. I’m also delivering nutrition workshops to the Loughborough Lightning Netball teams as well as creating and delivering nutrition talks for external school visits at the uni. I am also slowly setting up my own nutrition business.

Writing this and realising how far I’ve come is just credit to the MNU course, as well as my masters and nutrition internship from uni. Doing this course is one of the best decisions I’ve made!
