BSc (Hons) Nutritional Therapy Course

Flexible study. Outstanding support.


At ION, we understand the need for flexibility. We offer a range of options to accommodate both UK-based and international students, as well as both attendance and online learning modes. 

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. 

Both attendance and 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. 

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, all of our courses are currently online only. For those applying for September 2021 admission, online only study still remains the only option. If you have any concerns or questions about this, please get in touch.


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.

Online learning - anywhere, anytime

By using the very latest in online learning and communication technologies, if you choose to study online (C0503PTD), we ensure that all students, no matter where in the world they are, feel connected to the team here at ION. You will have access to exactly the same education, training and support as those studying here with us in the UK.

For online learners, we offer:

  • A 24/7 virtual learning campus with a range of carefully designed materials
  • Video seminars and ‘on demand’ video lectures
  • Networking opportunities and careers support
  • The same tuition fees for all students, both UK and international

BSc (Hons) Nutritional Therapy students without recognised prior learning in clinical practice are required for Level 6 to attend ION in Richmond to undertake their clinical practice.* 

This is an essential and compulsory part of the course and key to preparing you to practice once qualified. This will also provide an excellent opportunity to connect with ION staff and peers face-to-face.

* It is important to note that non UK/EU passport holders or those with visas may spend no more than six months in any given year studying here in the UK.
