The BSc (Hons) in academic partnership with the University of Greenwich
Demand for Nutritional Therapy is rapidly growing and a BSc qualification is becoming a necessity to increase public confidence in the profession.
- The BSc pogramme has been designed with flexibility in mind and is designed to be completed over 5 years part-time, however, you can complete it within 4 years if you have extra time. By the end of the programme students will complete a total of 360 credits required for the degree (195 with BCNH and 165 with UG).
- BSc qualification will distinguish you from the less qualified practitioners and give you the skills and confidence to collaborate with the medical profession, as well as other practitioners.
The BCNH courses are suitable for individuals who are serious about their future career as nutritional therapists.
- Students do not need to give up their jobs to study for a new career, however, to accommodate the 20 hours a week of self-directed study time, we recommend that candidates should have a 4-day-a-week work schedule.
- BCNH and UG enthusiastic, dynamic and highly trained academic team will provide you the support and motivation to help you achieve your goals.
- Degree students have access to the resources of the University, are eligible for a student loan and many other advantages as the result of a student card (e.g. you may be eligible for a council tax discounts, access to libraries, etc.)
A BSc programme will also further enhance your evidence-based skills and help you practice Functional Medicine with a more authoritative approach.
Although the demand for the Nutritional Therapy (NT) is rapidly growing, in increasingly more competitive market, a BSc will give you an advantage, regardless whether your set up your own practice or chose to work for an organisation.

Why study at BCNH?
At BCNH we teach nutritional therapy on the basis of Functional Medicine with a strong emphasis on a holistic, albeit evidence-based approach.
Our aim is to help facilitate the integration of Nutritional Therapy (NT) into orthodox medicine, and as such, we teach NT as an evidence-based subject, rather than an ‘alternative’ medicine.
