If you're interested in learning about the world of holistic nutrition or want to help others as I did, this course is a perfect option.

It covers all major corners of general nutrition and really allows you to focus on hypothetical real-life scenarios. Kim is a brilliant tutor, the modules are easy to read, and you get invested in the journey from start to finish.

Brilliant course!

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It helped refresh many areas and also allowed me to expand my knowledge in certain areas. It allows people from all backgrounds to learn, grow and understand nutrition on a deeper level without being too overwhelming.

To have the flexibility to control my schedule and assignments meant a lot, as it could fit alongside my current lifestyle and commitments.The Facebook group is full of positivity and support and is a great environment.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone seeking to further their nutrition and well-being knowledge.

I loved this course so much!

I work full time, and I’m so happy I could work around my schedule and study in my own time without the pressures of deadlines! I’ve learned so much in this course and am more confident in myself and my knowledge!

I am also a personal trainer, so I am so excited to help my current and new clients achieve their goals and help them with knowledge around nutrition and make better choices for a balanced, happy, healthy lifestyle!

Thank you guys so much!

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and have gained a lot of confidence in my nutrition knowledge. The units are well-paced, and the assignments really force you to do additional research and then be clear about your knowledge.

I recommend it to anyone who wants to move from a layperson level of nutrition to a basic practitioner level. There is obviously much more to learn to be fluent, but this will come with real experience, and I can always return to consult the documentation and recommended reading if I need it. It is just what I needed at this time in my nutrition journey growth.

What an amazing course! If you are interested in learning about nutrition either for yourself or as a career, I totally recommend jumping on board with the Nutrition Institute.

There is so much valuable information throughout the course. Each module opens your eyes and minds to what your body and mind need for optimum health; the connection between the two is fascinating. The assignments help you to absorb the information and apply it to real situations. Feedback is encouraging, and the support/advice is also valuable.

I found the course to be extremely beneficial to my health journey. Learning about gut health and the impact that it can have on your body and mind and vice versa was valuable information for me. With having my health struggles, I am applying what I’ve learned to improve my health and well-being, and I’m feeling/seeing the results in both body and mind.

I look forward to learning more and growing in nutrition so that I may help myself and, in turn, help others on their health journey. I’m pumped to start my own business as I’m passionate about nutrition and helping people. I can’t wait to share with others what I have learned.

I’m so glad I took the plunge and for the new season to come. Thank you to the Nutrition Institute; I’m very grateful for the course and support.

So if you are sitting there wondering whether the course is right for you, I say, ‘go for it!’. You have so much to gain by taking this course. Being online, you can take it at your pace and work it around your job or other commitments.

Take the plunge!

I looked at Nutrition courses for many years and had almost given up hope of finding anything that would fit in with my family when I stumbled upon the Nutrition Institute.

This course offered a convenient and more practical approach to Nutrition, focusing on how it could be applied in real life rather than the many courses that seemed to focus solely on the theoretical aspects. The knowledge and skills gained in each module built upon the previous, and it was incredible to feel my confidence growing with each step. My tutor Kim was ever so supportive and knowledgeable, providing thought-provoking feedback to my assignments and questions.

I intend to build a career in Nutrition and am excited about the prospect of the advanced courses through the Nutrition Institute. Before this course, I believed I understood Nutrition well, but many of my ideas have been challenged and have triggered changes to my own lifestyle that have made a huge difference to my health and well-being.

Aleesha Wood

I absolutely loved this course!

Kim and student support were always so quick to respond to any questions I had. The course itself was very informative and covered a lot of different bases in nutrition and nutrition practice. I even enjoyed how the assignments were done, and I liked the fact they were all done in a way where you had to pretend that you had clients and were working on them. It really helped build confidence in coaching people in real life.

Overall I'm very happy with how everything was laid out, explained and communicated too and am excited to now be a Nutritionist and help others and look forward to the advanced modules when they come out.

Thanks Kim and the NI team!

I've enjoyed my time studying online from home with The Nutrition Institute.

The work modules were informative and easy to read, making more complex information understandable. The module assignments offered the challenge needed to gain the depth of knowledge of each subject covered in the module. While doing some of these assignments, I enjoyed experimenting with different kitchen recipes and have created new food choices and recipes within the family's weekly diet, now having the depth of knowledge to do so.

Assignments were marked quickly, with positive and constructive feedback. The speed at which these marks returned helped with my motivation, and I can not speak highly enough on the responses and feedback I received from Kim.

The Nutrition Institute website also has many links, such as links to nutritional websites and blogs that are resourceful and support a higher understanding, awareness, and nutrition knowledge.

Based on the above, I thoroughly recommend study online with The Nutrition Institute.

I have really enjoyed working my way through this well presented, richly informative course!

Kim has been an inspirational and encouraging tutor who clearly lives and breathes wellness and nutrition.

The knowledge I have gained perfectly complements my passion for food and previous experience working as a wellness coach. I am excited to see what the future brings as I embark on a new career, supporting others to eat well for life!


Kylie Joan Carlson

Wow what a course, where do I start!?

Kim has been an amazing tutor who always provided constructive and motivational feedback which kept me on track.

Being a working mum of three girls, I loved the flexibility of working online, in my own time. I am a Fitness Instructor and an Exercise Consultant, so having more nutritional knowledge now, I feel I can help my clients achieve their goals better.

The course content is current, relevant and visually appealing with beautiful graphics. I highly recommend this course whether you're in the industry or just wanting to upskill yourself, you won't regret it!

I can't wait for the advanced short courses to come out! Thanks, NI team!

Emerald Reid

If you are looking for an online course based on nutrition that is modern, knowledgeable, fun, and varied then this is the one for you!

I have just completed the course, and it truly has been such a wonderful journey for myself of discovery, learning, unlocking new knowledge and skills that I thought I would never have. The course structure is clearly laid out, precise, and easy to comprehend. My tutor was so helpful and patient with me and having the extra Student Support option was awesome too.

I encourage you to take the plunge and immerse yourself in this exciting course; you won't regret it!


Linda Muollo

As a professional in the fitness industry, I get many inquiries about diet, and by completing the study through the Nutrition Institute, I feel more confident and equipped to offer advice and guidance which aligns with my own personal philosophy of nourishing one's body for better health and energy.

I also value how I feel educated to safely guide clients on other eating programs like vegan and keto. For example, this gives me the ability to inclusively incorporate healthy eating within the varied eating habits we see today.

Sarah Pickard

I feel like this course has changed my life. This course has given me the confidence to start my own business as well as helping my own understanding of foods.

It is well written, very easy to understand and relate to. It gives you a wide range of topics, and I recommend it to anyone interested in becoming a nutritionist or just wanting to know more about healthy living.

Nicole Walker

The Nutrition Institute has been a wonderful experience.

The course material was thorough but easy to understand. The support I received from Kim was exceptional. I found that if I had a question, it was answered promptly. My assignments were marked quickly, and the feedback I received was above and beyond helpful.

Over this course, I have gained so much knowledge and confidence, and I believe I am ready to take now my business idea (identified in assignment 12) and progress it into being my livelihood. I must give this course credit because I now know exactly what I want to do.

So thank you, Kim, and thank you to the Nutrition Institute for this opportunity in life.

Lynley Fricker

This course has been a huge journey for me. I am a 50+ woman who has never had the confidence to follow through with my dreams; I took the plunge and did this course.

I now have a Diploma in Nutrition, and I am completely blown away. I highly recommend it. The tutor I had was absolutely wonderful, caring, and encouraging.

Thank you, everyone! xxx
