There are a huge variety of nutrition training at all levels, from half day training courses to degrees and postgraduate qualifications.
We are unable to recommend individual courses/programmes, or to list all available courses/programmes, but these pages should give you some idea of the range of training opportunities on offer and the types of study at different stages in your educational career.
In order to become a Registered Nutritionist,
you will normally need to obtain at least
a BSc (Hons) in nutritional science.
We have lists of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes
that are currently accredited by the Association for Nutrition. These accredited programmes
meet our standards for the professional education of nutritionists. Graduates from these accredited courses can apply for direct entry onto the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists
at Associate level.
If you are looking to gain an insight into nutrition
to either support your current role, for general interest or to help you decide if you want to go on to university to study for a degree in nutrition and work towards applying to be a Registered Associate Nutritionist or Registered Nutritionist, you could look at undertaking an AfN Certified Course
. These have been assessed to meet our standards for certified courses.
If you are already a Registered Nutritionist or Registered Associate Nutritionist
and are looking to keep your knowledge up to date and develop further, please see the Endorsed CPD Events.
These have been assessed to meet our standards for continual professional development.
