    Much more than I expected.

    The course presentation is excellent, as is the content. There is a great deal of information but the way the course is split into the relevant sections makes it easy to work through. I have learn’t so much about nutrition from this!

    Really like it.

    I have done my fair share of online courses in this field and this is miles ahead. The other courses I have done feel a bit like a bunch of information without much structure.
    The interface is pretty slick and the navigation menu is really useful. I think these two elements helped me with working through the course and building knowledge.
    The final quiz is actually quite fun to do and I’m pleased to have passed first time around!

    Excellent value.

    I wanted to get a grounding in the area and this course has given me this: lots of interesting points and info.
    The nutrients section is great, its almost worth the fee alone
    I found the course very stimulating, especially the unit on genetic engineering of food. This has definitely opened my eyes on the subject.

    Well presented and informative

    This is an excellent course not only for those like myself who are in the field of nutrition, but for anyone who wants to equip themselves with some good sound knowledge of how they can make food work for them in a more positive way. Whether you want to lose weight or just eat healthy, it’s important to know how food interacts in the body and this course tells you all you need to know. The course is easy to navigate, clearly written and full of interesting facts so that we can all make the right choices and learn to enjoy food rather than fear it.

    Great course

    This course is very explained and has been logically split up into easy to understand sections. The instructor has made a very good explanation of every section without including any specific food biases. The admin staff have been quick to respond to all queries and have been very helpful every step of the way.

    Highly recommended.

    A riveting well structured course, I flew through this as I found it so fascinating.

    Interesting/well worth it

    Would recommend going through the course notes twice (at least) before taking the quiz!!! Lots of spelling/grammar mistakes in the notes, but this does not hinder a well-put-together course.
