Enjoy a student-centered learning experience
Listening to and learning from our students is a priority. We are proud of our high level of student satisfaction and very low drop-out rate. Our courses have evolved organically over the years to best satisfy student needs and preferences while continuing to meet and even exceed the requirements of our international awarding bodies.
A hands-on learning environment
We believe that the best way to learn is by doing, so there is plenty of practical experience built into our courses. Coaching course students apply their knowledge and skills with volunteer clients under expert supervision. Nutritional Therapy students conduct supervised consultations with real clients in our dedicated Nutritional Therapy Clinic. This provides them with invaluable experience and confidence before they start working with their own clients.
Flexible study to suit your life
Our blended learning options offer you a choice of attendance or online learning or a mix of both, enabling you to study with full interactive support wherever and whenever it suits you. This flexibility works well for our students, both in Ireland and across the world.
The ‘live’ class recordings, topic podcasts, tutorial recordings and all learning materials are available 24/7 on our dedicated learning centre. Assignments are submitted online. Evening tutorials with tutors are held frequently throughout the course, both at the college and via webinar. Each student is assigned a mentor who provides support by phone or Skype. Moderated online forums are used to post questions to tutors, share information on study topics, or swap recipes, ideas and advice with fellow learners.
All online students are encouraged, if at all possible, to attend some classroom and cooking days. This is a great opportunity to meet tutors and fellow students.
