Nutritional therapy degree top-up

Level 6 study modules


In this final level of the degree, you will explore and critique the theory and practice of behaviour change and alternative models of practice, and tools to enhance your practice by using reflection when considering your career portfolio. You will finish with a targeted research project.

You must take the following four core modules:

Models of Nutrition and Lifestyle Practice

In this business module you will hone your business skills and practices providing different ways of working and a clear understanding of how to monetise these. This module takes an in-depth look at different modules of working including online practice, group and community based work. There are lots of practical workshops giving you the opportunity try things out, so that you are fully ready to implement your learning in your own business.

Behaviour Change in Nutrition and Lifestyle Practice

In this module, you will learn a variety of different techniques and ways of working with people to help them achieve  success. This includes learning elements of psychology so you can begin to understand why people behave as they do and develop motivation skills to support your clients to embark on their journey of change. This understanding then drives the way you set up and run your practice and consultations, and is supported by the questioning techniques, apps, and tools you learn to use with clients to enable them to get the best outcomes and  make your practice more successful.

Research Skills

This module develops your research, ethics and governance skills and allows you to undertake a research project leading to a dissertation. 

Research Project

In your project you will develop a deeper understanding of research methodology and the ability to communicate your findings to a professional audience.
