ANutr via Direct Entry

Becoming registered as a Registered Associate Nutritionist by Direct Entry

Only graduates (within the last 3 years) from currently accredited degree programmes may apply by ‘Direct Entry Application’.

Completion of an AfN Accredited Degree Programme does not guarantee you will become registered, however it does demonstrate that you meet our professional standards of knowledge and understanding and are thus eligible to apply for registration without the need to complete a mapping form or present a portfolio of evidence.

If you have been previously registered, please email to be sent the appropriate application form – please do not use the application form below.

How to apply:


  • Applications without payment will not be forwarded to the registration team for processing.
  • Please ensure that you use the same email address in the application form below and when providing your details for payment. Applications and payments are linked together by email address, and if these don’t match, your application could be delayed.
  • Eligibility for direct entry application will be confirmed with your university.
  • Please ensure your degree programme is listed as being AfN accredited for the year you graduated and degree title awarded, as the processing portion of the application fee cannot be refunded for non-eligible submissions.
  • If you graduated from an accredited degree more than 3 years ago, you will need to apply via the Portfolio Entry Pathway.  
  • If you have been previously registered, please email to be sent an application form. Please do not use this online application form.
