Flexible study. Outstanding support.


At ION, we understand the need for flexibility. We pride ourselves on offering choice. 

  • Our BSc (Hons) Nutritional Therapy is a part-time, modular course. 
  • It can be completed over a four and a half to eight-year period, depending on the time you need.
  • You can study alongside your professional and personal commitments.

Regardless of how you study, we will ensure you are practice-ready by the time you graduate with us. 

Our online study modes are fully supported by experienced teaching staff and a range of carefully created materials, webinars, forums and information via our innovative virtual learning campus, RelION. 


Study options that fit around your commitments

For both study modes, we strive to offer a variety of engaging teaching methods. 

All lectures are recorded to give you the opportunity to watch them at your convenience, and to embed and enhance your learning and understanding. 

Module coordinators will engage with you via course forums and formative activities. You will also be invited to attend pre-scheduled online tutorials to provide you with an opportunity to connect with tutors and peers. As you progress through the degree, contact will lessen as you become more self-directed and ready to enter practice. All assessments are timetabled in advance.
