"BCNH has given me the chance to return to study 30 years after I started as an undergraduate. The materials and support for a distant leaner are excellent and the course is both intellectually challenging and enjoyable."
Angela (Year 1 Student)
'My years spent studying with BCNH and trying to balance my studies with work and home life have been very challenging but ultimately incredibly rewarding. Having completed my studies with BCNH I am in no doubt that I have received an education in nutritional therapy that is second to none and which sets BCNH graduates apart. The lectures were always both interesting and informative, often given by experts on the particular topic, and the BCNH tutors were both helpful and inspirational.'
'I have really enjoyed studying with BCNH and would recommend their course to anyone looking to study nutrition. The lectures were interesting and informative and everyone at the college is passionate about nutrition which is very motivating. I have completed the degree course feeling confident to begin my practice and share my nutrition knowledge with others. Thanks BCNH!'
"The last few years have been tough and challenging, but rewarding, as BCNH has given me the competency and the confidence to make a career out of Nutritional Therapy once I graduate."

'I am choosing to study at BCNH as there is a good course content with emphasis on a scientific approach to nutrition and the flexibility of the course fits in with current employment.'
The lecturers are extremely knowledgeable and take a real interest in their specialist areas. The teaching is delivered through a range of audio, video, webinars, lecture notes and other supporting material which I have found really beneficial. The tutors are passionate about nutrition which, along with the highly relevant course content, reinforces my belief in the value of this course. I would definitely recommend this course!

Hannah (potential student)
“Before deciding to do this course I researched into other colleges and thought that this course sounded the most thorough. As a distance learning student I have found the staff support excellent and extremely friendly and couldn't be more helpful or encouraging.”
Aine (Yr 1 student)
Despite the many hours completing my studies over the years (and through distance learning), I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey and am grateful for having such a depth of knowledge of the impact of nutrition has that can only be gained from the detailed approach from BCNH.
"The quality and depth of knowledge which I have gained during the 3 years of theoretical training was beyond anything that I have expected. The course gave me an in-depth appreciation of how the human body works and just how much impact nutrition has on biochemical processes within the body."
Anja (Year 4 student)
"BCNH is not just about what we need to do to achieve optimum health but as much, if not more, about how and why. Students are primed with extensive research findings to support consultations in their future practice with termly clinical seminars to ensure those research findings can be translated into easily digested information that is helpful to patients in future."
Ruth (Year 1 student)
“The BCNH modules are fascinating. They tend to be taught by an expert in the field, rather than by a more general lecturer. This makes each lecture weekend quite unique and gives the students an opportunity to ask an expert questions and hear about the lecturers’ own clinical experience.”

We are a leading provider of evidence-based BSc and Diploma courses teaching nutrition based on functional medicine.
