Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How long do I have to complete the course?

The course is designed to be self-paced. Normally, you would expect to be dedicating on average about 4-6 hours per week for 24 weeks. However, many students take up to one year to complete their studies because of family or work commitments.

How do I communicate with my tutor?

You can contact your tutor at any time through our secure student site, which you will gain access to once you enrol. Your tutor's role is to assess your assignments and provide you with feedback. They are also available to answer any questions you may have about the course.

Do I have to attend any classes?

No. The courses are completed online. This means there are no classes to attend. You can study in your own time and at your own pace.

Do I have to have a background in nutrition?

No. The course is designed to allow for students who have had little or no experience in nutrition.

Do I need computer skills?

Only basic computer skills are required to complete the online nutrition course.

When can I start?

As the course is provided online, you have the flexibility to start when and where it suits you. If you enrolled today, for example, you could start straight away.

Do you mail any course notes or materials out?

Our courses are delivered online and all information is provided digitally. As soon as you join, you will gain access to our online student site. You can download the course materials as you proceed through each module. As the modules are provided in PDF format you can keep them for future reference and print if you wish. The only time we mail something out is when you successfully graduate our course.

What if I need more time?

If you need more time, you can purchase one of our affordable extensions. We currently offer 3, 6 and 12 month extensions.

Will I be able to chat with other students?

Yes. We have a dedicated student Facebook group, which allows you to connect with other like-minded students where you can discuss your assignments, the course and all things nutrition.
