The Nutritional Therapy Science Access Course (NTSAC) aims to give students a solid grounding in the core science subjects that relate to nutrition.

 


 

Module One: Chemistry

This module explores the composition, structure and properties of substances and the interactions between them, and covers three core areas:

  • Inorganic Chemistry - the study of the structure, properties, and reactions of organic compounds and organic materials
  • Physical Chemistry - the study of macroscopic, atomic, subatomic, and particulate phenomena in chemical systems in terms of the principles, practices, and concepts of physics
  • Organic Chemistry the study of the structure, properties, and reactions of organic compounds and organic materials

  

Module Two: Biology

This module introduces learners to the study of life and living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical composition, function, development and evolution at the microscopic level.

 

Module Three: Anatomy and Physiology

This module is with concerned with the study of the structure of organisms and their parts and takes learners on a journey of discovery through the human body.

 


 

Each of the three modules you will study will be assessed by means of an essay, report, exam, multiple choice test, or a combination of these.
