Master in Sports Nutrition

With the Course of Master in Sports Nutrition We will learn how to take a proper diet and prepare the player individually with progressive follow-ups.

The great nutrition system that food offers us makes this world something very diverse and sophisticated, where each diet can be very different from that of a teammate on the same team.

Depending on the needs of each individual we can take advantage of more carbohydrates, in some cases more protein and a good dose of mineral salts to rebuild all those fibers that we break when the body exercises.

Finally clarify that a diet can not always be positive. Some people react negatively and should be given a control to improve both their physical and physiological state.

This training program will be carried out taking into account the following points:

Virtual classroom: The courses are taught entirely online. They are carried out through our virtual campus which is accessed from the front page of our website,, through the button Access to the Virtual Classroom. From there you will be able to enter syllabi, explanatory presentations, demonstrative videos, analysis of the teachers, tasks that the teachers send and correct.

Tutors: The teachers offer continuous tutoring, establishing tutorials over the phone and/or by videoconference, explaining the doubts that may arise, and will guide your training evolution throughout the course, depending on your profile and level of dedication or study schedule. As we have indicated, the syllabus, videos, articles, interviews with experts... are part of your evolution in the course, so you will carry out periodic exercises that the teacher corrects to give you the clearest idea of the topic that is being working.

Evaluation: At the end of the course you will carry out a final project that will encompass all the areas studied and that will always involve the development of a real case, since from FutbolLab we want our courses at all times to be directed to the real training situation that the technicians are in their teams.

Enrollment process: To enroll, you just have to click on the Enroll tab, from there it will ask you to enter your personal data necessary for the academic record and in the final part of the process you will be able to choose the payment format for this program.

Remind you that in this course you can go at your own pace and do it according to your availability, as long as you do not exceed the maximum time to do it, which in the case of master's degrees is 2 and a half years, 18 months for Expert or Technical courses and 7 months for courses that are not in these categories.

It is plenty of time to do it, if you still need more time, you must request authorization from the admissions department to extend a time, in the event that you get a positive response, the new agreed time will be automatically extended.
