Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care.

Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual's symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health.

What our students say

When I was looking to study Nutrition, my main prerequisites were flexibility and quality. I used to travel a lot with my job at the time, working abroad up to two weeks per month and taking several flights every week. Studying Nutritional Medicine (now Nutritional Therapy) at the University of West London allowed me to study at university level, whilst maintaining a healthy work/life balance. I studied on planes, trains, and anywhere else you can imagine! Plus I used to love the 'Nutrition Nuggets' weekends too. Studying at the University of West London has opened many career opportunities for me, so I'm only too happy to recommend the Nutritional Therapy course to any prospective students needing flexibility without compromising on quality of education. If you're looking for a BSc or a BSc Honours in Nutritional Therapy from one of the best modern universities in England, then look no further. Miguel Toribio-Mateas
