The AfN currently accredits 47 undergraduate and 25 postgraduate programmes. These degrees support the development of nutritionists’ skills through the delivery of evidence-based nutrition education to a professional level. Students completing an accredited degree programme have the right to apply for direct entry at Registered Associate level to the UKVRN, which entitles them to use the letters ANutr after their names.

AfN CERTIFIED COURSES
AfN Certified Courses are ideal for individuals who deliver nutrition information to the public at level 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5+ on the Public Health and Skills Careers Framework and wish to update or extend their nutrition knowledge, but are not looking to train to the level required to be a registered Nutritionist. Courses are certified against competences set for those working/volunteering/interested in either Health & Social Care, Fitness & Leisure or Catering.
Please note this scheme certifies courses, not the individuals who complete them and do not result in any professional title such as certified diet advisor, fitness coach, nutrition advisor or equivalent.
