If you are looking at studying Nutrition for weight/body composition management & performance?

The Certificate in Applied Sports Nutrition is the program for you to see if this is the career for you for the cost of 1-2 uni subjects (1/20th of $$ for a degree)

Unlike other Hobby Course Providers that bag university study, we believe and strongly encourage degrees down the track. Just once you have some experience in the field and know this is the career for you (which is why we have a 3-year provisional registration period).

Other short courses or ‘Hobby’ programs (see here for the hobby course breakdown) don’t provide you with insurance, or any form of relevant professional registration (impacting career prospects).

Whereas with degrees in Applied Health/Nutrition/Sports/Exercise Science Programs you aren’t able to work out if it is actually the career for you at least until you reach the practical training in your final year of study, or worst, when you graduate.. So you’re tens of thousands of $$, and years of study in before realising that this isn’t for you.
