Academic & Clinical Excellence

At BCNH we are passionate about providing our students with the most thorough training to become successful Nutrition Practitioners.

Validated by the University of Northampton

From September 2021 we will offer BSc(Hons) in Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine validated by University of Northampton. We are very excited about this new partnership as we share many values with the University.

Academic Excellence

BCNH has been a leading provider of nutritional therapy courses for over 20 years.  We first partnered with a UK university in 2005, enabling us to offer credit-bearing modules within our Diploma programmes and elevating academic standards to level 6 (undergraduate level).
We are delighted to now be able to offer our students a BSc (Hons) Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine validated by the University of Northampton, a UK Government Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Gold University.

The validating panel complimented BCNH on the following areas of good practice:

Feedback from our students and External Examiner also highlights the following additional areas in which we excel:

Clinical Excellence

The BSc (Hons) Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine incorporates comprehensive clinical training based on a functional medicine model. It has been designed to provide you with the confidence and skills to become a safe and effective nutrition practitioner, able to communicate appropriately with the medical profession.
The core curriculum for nutritional therapy (which must be met for NTEC accreditation) stipulates that a minimum of 70 hours of development and supervision of clinical skills is required; our BSc (Hons) course provides approximately 112 clinical contact hours, comprising of small-group clinical seminars delivered throughout the course and the delivery of supervised live consultations to four clients in the level 6 Clinical Practice modules.
Similarly, the core curriculum requires a minimum of 15 case studies to be completed; BCNH course, however, provides the opportunity for students to complete approximately 35 increasingly complex case studies (fictional, observational, role-play and supervised with real clients).  Real client case studies also incorporate writing referral letters to your clients’ GPs (with their permission), as part of the process of learning to work with the medical profession.
The extensive nature of the clinical training, coupled with the gradual development and support for the development of clinical skills, ensures that you will leave the programme confident in your ability to practice and able to focus on generating business, rather than being concerned about how to effectively carry out a consultation.
