  1. 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 wthout 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!

  2. Fantastic Course!

    Loads of information written at a level that was easy to understand. Made plenty of notes along the way that really helped me for the final quiz!

  3. 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!

  4. Very interesting course

    Full of useful information. Nice design and its easy to make steady progress. Worth it.

  5. 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.

  6. Great Value

    Very informative and thorough. Interface is slick and easy to get through. Enjoyed it!

  7. 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.

  8. Highly recommended!

    Excellent course. Well worth the money. It has clearly been designed and written keeping the student in mind. I really liked the way the course was structured and how information was broken down. There was certainly a lot of information to take in especially considering it is a level 3 course. I am very happy with my result and my new found knowledge.

  9. Brilliant course - worth every penny

    I was looking for an AfN accredited course to help me to get into University to do my Masters degree in Nutrition and I came across this course. I’m glad I did as it got me into University and was worth the money. It is very informative and spilt into sections which are easy to read through and make notes etc. All of the information is relevant and has really boosted my knowledge in the Nutrition sector. The quiz at the end was a bit tricky but as long as you’ve revised the course in full, you will pass it! Thank you very much to Khalid for creating a brilliant course.
