Flexible Study Options
Flexible Study Options
Our teaching is based on a blended learning strategy, combining traditional classroom-based teaching with online learning and activities. Diploma students can choose to register as either an attendance student or a distance learner.
Whichever option you choose, we have designed our course with flexibility in mind.
Our standard course is spread over 4 years, part-time, and requires approximately 15 hours of private study every week (in addition to viewing lectures and attending seminars in person or online). Individual study plans are also available, making it possible to complete the course in 3-6 years, enabling you to fit your studies around your other commitments.
Attendance students attend classes at University College London (UCL) in central London approximately once a month (on Saturdays) between September and June.
Attendance classes may be practical lectures, theory seminars or clinical seminars and are a great opportunity for you to meet and interact with fellow students and teachers.
Online / Distance Learning (DL) Study
We recognise that online learning can be isolating at times, therefore we provide you with as many opportunities as possible to interact with other students e.g. via mentoring, webinars, forums and email groups with your peers. Your Personal Tutor will also be available via Skype to support you every step of the way throughout your studies, helping you to develop strong clinical and academic skills.
Live streaming of Lectures and Seminars via Panopto
Our use of Panopto lecture streaming and recording software allows you to join streamed lectures as they happen, as well as providing the flexibility to view and search recordings after the event.
All students are required to attend one clinical weekend in London in in the final clinical training year (usually early in September).
Attendance at Year 4 clinical weekends for all students is compulsory for all students to ensure students acquire appropriate clinical training and experience in preparation for their career in nutritional therapy.
We look forward to hearing from you!
