Dairy Council ‘Sports Nutrition’ prize winner at Ulster University

Ulster University graduate Hannah Lough has been awarded the first Dairy Council for Northern Ireland Sports Nutrition Prize for securing the highest mark of the year in her MSc in Sports and Exercise Nutrition.

Hannah said:

“I always loved home economics and biology at school and after gaining an undergraduate degree in dietetics from Ulster University, I wanted to further build my skills and knowledge in the area of sports nutrition. Having really enjoyed my undergraduate experience, I decided to sign up for a Masters.”

Hannah was awarded the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland Sports Nutrition Prize for her commitment to her studies and topping the class.

“I am delighted that my hard work has been recognised by the Dairy Council. My graduation is a culmination of a really busy and exciting year and I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for my career in the field of sports and exercise nutrition.”

Stephanie Ingram, Sports and Exercise Nutritionist, Dairy Council for Northern Ireland said:

“The Dairy Council has long standing relationship with Ulster University spanning more than 25 years, particularly with the Northern Ireland Centre for Food and Health (NICHE). We are delighted to now also be working with the School of Sport and through this partnership wish to encourage excellence in both research and the education of the sports and exercise nutritionists of tomorrow. We would like to congratulate Hannah on her achievement in winning the first Dairy Council Sports Nutrition prize.”

Ulster University Course Director, Dr Andrea McNeilly added:

“This is a fantastic achievement for Hannah and recognises her hard work during the past year. The MSc in Sports and Exercise Nutrition has recently received accreditation from the British Dietetic Association Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register. This means that students are automatically eligible to apply for graduate registration, so they can start to practice as sport and exercise nutritionists after they graduate.”
