How the Course Works
Learning and Assessment
You’ll learn via lectures, small group seminars, tutorials, practical activities and private study. Practical activities and work placements help you relate theory to real-life applications (and work towards industry qualifications).
You’re assessed by a combination of examinations and coursework. You’ll be encouraged to critically evaluate information and challenge concepts using evidence-based information, as well as being encouraged to show initiative, research and construct your own knowledge.
These skills will enable you to effect change in a working environment.
The single most crucial aspect of student life is the need to engage with all teaching activities, such as lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical work and lectorials. Active participation is critical to your learning and the assessment strategy.
This course is accredited by the Association for Nutrition, the independent regulator for Registered Nutritionists.
