Flexible Study Options

At BCNH we take a blended learning approach to course delivery. Some of the lecture material for each module will be pre-recorded (video and audio), ready for viewing at a time convenient to you. There will also be live online lectures and regular seminars, scheduled to take place outside of working hours.  

Online learning does not mean you will study on your own. Our regular online activities, webinars, theory / clinical seminars, tutorials and student group sessions will ensure that you feel a part of BCNH student community.

No – all lectures, including clinical training, are delivered online.

Clinical Practice

No –  students will consult with their own clients under supervision.

During the clinical practice modules, students will undertake 4 live case studies with real clients. These case studies will have 4 consultations each, and each consultation will be supervised by one of our experienced clinic supervisors.

More information about our clinical practice year can be found here. 

Career Prospects

Most BCNH graduates go on to start successful nutrition practices, offering personalised nutrition and lifestyle advice to paying clients. There are, however, many other opportunities available and the majority of our graduates will have a variety of different income streams. For example, whilst some days may be spent in clinic, others may be dedicated to corporate work, teaching nutrition (to adults or children), or writing (e.g. blogs, articles, books).

Some graduates have also gone on to work in product development and technical support, for example, providing practitioner support and education in supplement and testing companies.
