Why study nutrition?
A career in nutrition is undeniably a fulfilling path as well as an exciting challenge. Nutrition practitioners are diet and balanced lifestyle experts. They use their knowledge to help their clients reach their health goals from losing or gaining weight, boosting their energy and immune system, increase their understanding about diets, preventing or helping overcome certain diseases and many more. Nutrition and food science is a great field for people with analytical and problem-solving skills.
DO YOU NEED A DEGREE TO BECOME A NUTRITIONAL PRACTITIONER?
As opposed to dieticians, nutrition practitioners are not required to obtain a four-year degree. In fact nutrition studies are less regulated and thus do not require any prior degree or qualification. This is why studying nutrition is a great opportunity to advance your career or even reinvent yourself professionally without dedicating several years to this curriculum.
WHAT ARE THE OUTCOMES OF STUDYING NUTRITION?
Nutrition's main focus is to understand the relationship between food, diet and health. This is thus a powerful and much-needed field for anyone invested in building a healthy lifestyle. A diploma in nutrition offers various and exciting opportunities such as:
- setting-up your own nutrition practice or enhancing your existing one
- running a nutrition clinic
- selling natural health products
- working at a food manufacturing company
- researching and authoring studies in the nutrition field
HOW AND WHERE CAN YOU STUDY NUTRITION?
As mentioned, nutrition studies are not overly regulated which enable nutrition courses to come in a wide variety of shapes: students can thus choose to study part-time, at their own rate, in the classroom or online. When researching a nutrition course it is important that you take into account the time that you will be able to allocate to not only attend the courses but also study and work on projects. A serious nutrition course should include real-life training, practice and work experience for example through a student clinic to gain professional experience. You also want to ensure the course will provide you with good level courses and a recognised diploma to prove your skillset.
