CNELM's Nutritional Therapy Practice Diploma (NTPD) modules

The NTPD is not a standalone award and must be studied 'integrated' (alongside) or 'separated' (after) one of the following degree level programmes:

1) BSc (Hons) Nutritional Science (undergraduate)

2) MSc Personalised Nutrition (postgraduate)

3) Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) Personalised Nutrition (postgraduate)

Completing the NTPD in combination with one of these degree level programmes meets the Core Curriculum and National Occupational Standards for Nutritional Therapy as set down by the Nutritional Therapy Education Commission (NTEC). Graduates of the combined programmes practicing within the UK can apply to register with the voluntary regulator the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and for professional membership of the British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy (BANT).
