Find out about studying at ION - Open events - FAQs What are the benefits of coming to an open event*? The benefit of attending an open event is that you will get a feel of ION and the course through meeting managerial, teaching and administrative staff. You will leave with a good insight into the course content, study facilities and the demands of studying nutritional therapy, along with some career ideas. You will also be able to get your questions answered and meet some of your potential fellow students. *Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, open events during the 2020/21 academic year will be conducted online (using webinars). Is it possible to work whilst studying? A significant number of our students are in paid employment or have other responsibilities to juggle. Some of our students are in professional roles such as accountancy or law, and are studying in order to make a career change. Others combine studying with running a business. Students have found working and studying to be a challenge, but we have been inspired by how they are motivated to organise themselves to meet multiple demands. What is a webinar?
