Nick
(Yr 2 student)
“The BCNH course is tough and demanding. It is hard work but then it has to be because when we are seeing clients we really need to understand what we are doing.”
Sarah T
(Yr 1 student)
“The BCNH modules are fascinating. They tend to be taught by an expert in the field, rather than by a more general lecturer. This makes each lecture weekend quite unique and gives the students an opportunity to ask an expert questions and hear about the lecturers’ own clinical experience.”
Nichola R
(Yr 3 student)
“The course content is fascinating, and I really look forward to the lectures. They are given by experienced practitioners, and not only do they teach the subjects thoroughly, but they are able to relate them to real-life experience. I’m really enjoying learning and can’t wait to start practising myself.”
Elizabeth M
(Yr 3 student)
“At BCNH the emphasis is on science and thoroughly understanding the mechanism behind everything. It is possible to complete this degree while also doing a full-time job, which is great.”
Paula J
(Yr 1 student)
“Most students come from different fields and walks of life, which makes the course even more interesting and everyone works well together. I have made some good friends on this course.”

(Graduate)
“Having completed my studies with BCNH I am in no doubt that I have received an education in nutritional therapy that is second to none and which sets BCNH graduates apart. The lectures were always both interesting and informative, often given by experts on the particular topic, and the BCNH tutors were both helpful and inspirational.”
Sara
(Graduate)
“I have just graduated from BCNH and I feel that at age 59, completing this training had been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. The course does need dedication and commitment but you are well supported by tutors who have hands on experience and by first class lecturers who are experts in the fields of nutrition and science. The course is well thought out and progressively structured so that by year 3 you really do become an expert in nutrition.”
Glynis P
(Graduate)
“The high level of technical knowledge I received while studying at BCNH provided me with the skills and confidence necessary for turning my passion into a successful profession – and for this I am very grateful.”
Susan T
(Graduate)
“Following thorough investigation of other colleges, I chose BCNH because I wanted my training to be of a very high standard and also because the lectures were at weekends and evenings which enabled me to still work while studying.”
Hilary
(Graduate)
“Studying at BCNH gave me a thorough, science-based grounding and understanding of nutritional therapy which allows me to speak with some authority to other practitioners. Although it is challenging, its detailed approach is vital in the ever-changing world of nutrition. I can whole-heartedly recommend it – the hard work pays off for many years to come.”
Laura S
(Graduate)
“I am completing Year 4 now and I am having such successful case studies in the village (word of mouth is definitely the best thing!!) I now have at least 3 paying clients waiting to go!”
Jo J
(Yr 4 student)
“BCNH is an excellent school that challenges your everyday thinking about nutrition. Whilst their lectures give you the foundation you need to build a sound practice, their evidence-based approach really encourages students to become confident in reading the literature and to keep learning and making clinical decisions for themselves.”
Ashley H
(Graduate)
“The last few years have been tough and challenging, but rewarding, as BCNH has given me the competency and the confidence to make a career out of Nutritional Therapy once I graduate.”
Ashley
(Year 3 student)
“BCNH works so hard to find subject specialists to deliver every single one of its lectures. Being blessed with a specialist at the front of a class means the most insightful anecdotes are shared and I’ve yet to attend a session where the lecture wasn’t able to answer one of the many questions.”
Ruth
(Year 1 student)
“BCNH is not just about what we need to do to achieve optimum health but as much, if not more, about how and why. Students are primed with extensive research findings to support consultations in their future practice with termly clinical seminars to ensure those research findings can be translated into easily digested information that is helpful to patients in future.”
Ruth
(Year 1 student)
“The Student Support team at BCNH is small yet perfectly formed. The team has a wealth of experience in both practice and academic environments which is readily shared with all students to ensure they are achieving the best possible grade and become successful practitioners. Learning resources are extremely easy to access, delivered through a variety of mediums and if for any reason you can’t lay your hands on something, someone in the student support team usually can!”
Ruth
(Year 1 student)
“The quality and depth of knowledge which I have gained during the 3 years of theoretical training was beyond anything that I have expected. The course gave me an in-depth appreciation of how the human body works and just how much impact nutrition has on biochemical processes within the body.”
Anja
(Year 4 student)
“I am a very detailed and technical person and the course gave me the knowledge and confidence to go out there and start my own practise as Nutritional Therapist. I studied this course via the distance learning option and all I can say that it worked for me very well. I could schedule my studies around childcare and other commitments and always had support from tutors, the principal and my fellow peers.”
Anja
(Year 4 student)
“Not your ‘normal’ nutrition student, being male and only a few years away from the average retirement age in western societies, I nevertheless feel I’ve made the right choice, especially choosing BCNH as my teaching institute.”
Stephan
(Year 3 student)
“The modules are comprehensive, the teachers are very competent and the standards are high. The new collaboration with the University of Greenwich ensures also a high degree of acceptance and recognition after graduating. Last but not least, as a distance learner I feel totally integrated into the student body and always up-to-date with all the materials.”
Stephan
(Year 3 student)
“Since joining, I have thoroughly enjoyed my learning experience. Lecturers are of excellent quality, course work is extremely informative.”
Melanie
(Year 1 student)
“To learn long distance is daunting, however, BCNH has provided a great learning platform which has been a great place to make new friends with whom I study with – yes, long distance study buddies, thanks to the marvels of technology.”
Melanie
(Year 1 student)
“BCNH has given me the chance to return to study 30 years after I started as an undergraduate. The materials and support for a distant leaner are excellent and the course is both intellectually challenging and enjoyable.”
Angela W
(Year 1 student)
“I am now in my 3rd year of study with BCNH and it has been an incredible journey! A roller-coaster ride of brilliant lectures from impressive nutritionists to pouring over clinical papers and academic essay deadlines. Not to be undertaken lightly, BUT totally worth it and I can’t wait for the clinical year coming next!”
Julie
(Year 3 student)
“The lecturers are extremely knowledgeable and take a real interest in their specialist areas. The teaching is delivered through a range of audio, video, webinars, lecture notes and other supporting material which I have found really beneficial. The tutors are passionate about nutrition which, along with the highly relevant course content, reinforces my belief in the value of this course. I would definitely recommend this course!”
Donna
(Year 2 student)
“BCNH focuses on evidence-based nutritional therapy and provides all students with the skills to properly assess and analyse nutritional research papers and translate the findings into common sense advice for your clients.”
Sarah T
(graduate)
“Having lectures at UCL for me was an added pleasure and an opportunity to meet up with fellow students and make new friends. I feel the course has helped me to be a professional, confident practitioner- fitter and healthier than before and looking forward to the future.”

Ruth
(Year 1 student)
“Despite the many hours completing my studies over the years (and through distance learning), I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey and am grateful for having such a depth of knowledge of the impact of nutrition has that can only be gained from the detailed approach from BCNH.”
Claire
(Graduate)
“I have recently completed the BSc and Clinical Training at BCNH, which I completed as both an attendance and distant-learning student. The courses are tough and intense, but I would not have wanted it any other way. Throughout these courses I have not been able to fault the quality and attention to detail of the course material, the scientific-focus of the teaching, the calibre of the lecturers, the passion of the college tutors and principle, the student support and student-focus of the college.”
Adrian
(BSc Graduate)
“I have recently completed the BCNH Diploma in Nutritional Therapy after 4 years of intensive study. I now feel equipped with an in-depth, evidence based level of knowledge as well as the ability to continue the academic research essential to keep abreast of the ever-evolving field of nutritional therapy. Whilst 3 years of academic study kept me fully involved and stretched, it was the 4th year of clinical practice where I realised that it is not enough simply to know the mechanisms involved!”
Julie W
(Graduate)
“BCNH is a small college which allows it a very personal approach with students. It has helped instill in me a true passion for the study of nutritional science and the practice of nutritional therapy to help people. Seeing the benefits I have brought through nutrition to my own clients during clinical training was wonderful and inspiring. Now as a qualified Nutritional Therapist I feel ready and confident to practice.”
Adrian W
(Graduate)
“The clinical year is probably the most stressful and pressure-driven part of the course, but without it I would not have been able to start my business immediately, confident in my technical knowledge and ability to hit the ground running. Since qualifying, I have met with other newly-qualified students at BANT meetings who envy the large number of supervised consultations and written documentation that BCNH students have to go through in their final year.”
Julie W
(Graduate)
“I just had my first consultation here in the US and it has been 2 years since I had my last consultation in the UK. I just wanted to thank you for preparing us all so well. I felt totally in control, knew how to approach the consultation and knew what I am talking about! THANK YOU for all your dedication to BCNH, without this I doubt we would receive such top education and guidance.”
Anja S
(Graduate)
“Breda , you deserve every success with the college because you work so very hard & also you have your students very best interest at heart (even if you were a little scary at times with your ‘Dear Students’ emails, when we received those we knew that we were in trouble, and felt like we were in the Headmistresses office at school! I remember so well that you used to say to us ‘when you qualify you can do what you like, but whilst you are my students you will do it the way that I say’ and good job you did Breda because you gave us an invaluable & thorough grounding), and I most certainly wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for you & BCNH.”
