Improve your overall health and happiness with our online Nutrition course!
In this 12-module course, you will gain a strong understanding of the role of nutrition in the human body by learning about each of the main food groups. You will learn about complex carbohydrates, polyunsaturated fats and the glycaemic index, become familiar with the vital purpose of antioxidants and their relationship with free radicals, and learn what to look out for even if products have a health endorsement claim. We will also focus on diet, well-being and obesity by examining the human energy balance, body detoxification, as well as acquire a deep comprehension of our metabolism.
The course is delivered online and you can study in your own time, at your own pace. Students are provided with 12 months to complete the course, and extensions can be purchased if extra time is required. The modules are designed to be read sequentially. They will help build a solid foundation of knowledge that not only gives you the skills to take control of your own health, but opens doors to the greater global conversation about the powerful impact nutrition has on disease, well-being and longevity.
There are exercises at the end of each module which will require you to participate in expressing what you have learnt. It is through participation and interaction that you will begin to feel more empowered and confident, not only to create healthy recipes, but to find your own voice about the power of food in holistic health.
As you move through the course, you will naturally experience transformation as your thoughts and opinions evolve. The strong foundation you will achieve will allow you to fulfil your potential as a Nutritionist.
When you enrol, you will receive a username and password that enables you to log onto our secure student site. From there, you can download your first module, which you could liken as your textbook as it contains all the information you will need to complete assignment one. Each module is approximately 90 pages in length and is full of detailed information delivered in a friendly, conversational manner that is easy to understand. The concepts are further explained by way of images and examples.
Once you have completed your assignment (some are just theoretical, but others combine theory and practical tasks) you then upload this onto our site for your tutor to mark. The tutors will give you a grade (out of 10) and a comprehensive evaluation of your work as well as ideas to help nurture and improve your knowledge each step of the way.
What makes The Nutrition Institute so unique is that throughout our course, you have access to the safety net and guidance of the team here at Student Support, who you can contact 24/7.
You also have direct contact with your personal tutor who guides you closely through each step of the course, offering personalised and specific constructive criticism on your submitted work. If you ever have any questions in relation to your course or assignments, all you need to do is send your tutor a quick message and they will reply with an answer as soon as they can.
With this close tutor mentorship, you will feel like your tutor is in the same room as you, and all this can be achieved from the comfort of your own home. That is the beauty of our courses; you can study when you like and at your own pace.
The tutors who work for us are not just teachers, but the best working professionals in their field. By drawing on their knowledge, you will gain an edge that will help you realise your true potential.
We have a Facebook group that we have exclusively designed for our students. This group contains students from across the globe, interacting with each other on all topics covered by our course. It provides a great opportunity for students to meet fellow students from all over the world, ask questions, share knowledge and experience, upload work, give and receive feedback, make new friends and talk everything nutrition.
