Level 6 Diploma in Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine
Due to new BANT requirements, we are no longer enrolling students on our Diploma Programme. Students embarking on new courses from September 2021 will only be able to join BANT as student members (and expect to become full members on graduation) if their course will lead to a Bachelor’s honours degree or higher.
We are currently negotiating a BSc (Hons) in Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine with a British University. We will publish further details about this programme in April 2021.
Our Thorough Training Offers Excellent Value for Money
|BCNH students agree that our thorough training and passion for nutrition offers excellent value for money.|
|Our Diploma course offers the most comprehensive training in nutrition – our curriculum is updated every year to reflect the latest research and our lecturers are experts in their field.
Our evidence-based training also equips students with the necessary skills to search, analyse and critically evaluate nutrition research; a skill with is essential for safe practice.
|We also instil in our students the importance of detailed technical knowledge. “Mechanisms” is a sacred word at BCNH and all of our students and graduates associate BCNH with mechanisms! Essentially, this is about understanding ‘why’ or ‘how’ a food or nutrient, for example, may be beneficial or harmful for your client by understanding the physiological processes it can influence in the body. Knowing your mechanisms is important in order to be taken seriously by both your clients and fellow health professionals.|
We treat students as individuals, not as numbers, offering excellent tutorial support.
We care about each one of you and ensure that you are supported in every way possible to meet your goals. Each year you will have a personal tutor, who will monitor your progress and offer academic as well as pastoral support via Skype and via discussion forums on our virtual learning environment.
Whether you are an attending student or a distance learning student, our tutors and programme leaders are there to support you throughout your studies, helping you to develop strong clinical and academic skills.
As our Diploma modules are highly academic, you will require approximately 20 hours per week to study modules, read research papers, complete on-line quiz exercises, summative assignments, etc.
Although this may seem like a significant time investment, the topics we teach on the course are fascinating and, if you are passionate about nutrition, it will not feel like a ‘sacrifice’.
Work and Study
Our courses are designed with flexibility in mind and can be completed alongside other commitments (please see Flexible Study Options for further information).
As the teaching is at degree-level, the coursework can be challenging, however our team will support you every step of the way to make your experience and studies at BCNH enjoyable.
Whilst you do not need to give up your job to study with BCNH, we do recommend a 4-day-a-week work schedule, where possible, to accommodate the 20 hours a week of self-directed study time estimated to be required for successful completion. A 5-day a week work schedule is, however, also acceptable if you are willing to ‘sacrifice’ more weekend time for study.
Your New Journey
From this point forward, you will embark on a new and exciting journey towards your new career, helping people to change their lives.
