The Health Sciences Academy ® is the largest online educator on nutrition science in the UK, focusing on science-based certification courses recognised by government-regulated awarding bodies, from Sports and Exercise Nutrition, to Clinical Weight Loss, to Advanced Supplements.

Everyone is confused by a mass of conflicting health and nutrition information.

There are hundreds of "dietary theories" out there, but they all miss the most important thing: the SCIENCE.

That's why our courses are built around science-based methods and resources, so YOU can become the expert.

Our lessons and practical materials are 100% researched and developed by us. Yes, we are a team of scientists and researchers who are at the forefront of nutritional sciences and feel incredibly passionate about making a meaningful difference. Meet us HERE!

What works for you, may not work for someone else. Why? Because everyone has a different biochemistry, genetic makeup and nutrient needs.

For that reason, we provide you with health questionnaires, planning guides, worksheets and step-by-step strategies, all unique to our courses and not available anywhere else. With our powerful tools, you'll be able to:

  • Pinpoint the unique needs of each individual
  • Build personalised programmes that work

“If you want to learn science, it doesn't get any better than learning from the scientists themselves.”

Why they enrol.

Here are 8 main reasons why our students choose us:

REASON 1. There are too many conflicting "dietary theories" out there. The problem is that they are formed on the basis of personal opinions, without adequate interpretation of the SCIENCE. You can either waste a year reading a hundred opinions and unproven theories - OR we can teach you how to interpret the science so YOU can become the expert.

REASON 2. Holistic teachers and celebrity "experts" enchant fans with a mass of pseudo-science. But our students know better and are eager to learn the science from the scientists themselves: meet us HERE! Our skill is to cut through junk studies and unproven theories, so you can learn what really works - and what doesn't.

REASON 3. Anybody can provide others with nutritional advice. The problem is: many base it on hear-say, things they've read (out of context) or what worked for them (which may not work for someone else). Our mission is to mitigate the risk of wrong advice. Through science-based guidance, templates and practical exercises, we make this possible.

REASON 4. Most educational programmes provide generic nutritional information, leaving out your unique biochemistry and nutrient needs. But we don't. We teach our students how to evaluate individual requirements and how to create personalised plans. That’s why our courses are built around science-based nutrient assessments and proven planning tools that help you discover the best approach for you or your client.

REASON 5. Most online nutrition courses don't cite scientific sources. We provide our students with the latest scientific research from peer-reviewed journals, including additional resources so they can expand their knowledge and continue with their own research.

REASON 6. Unlike online coaching schools, we don't have a hidden marketing agenda where they heavily advertise book authors and have no original content to teach you. We self-fund all research activity (that's why you won't find any ads or promotions on our site). Our content is original, 100% researched and produced by us, and you won't be able to find it anywhere else (unless we specifically reference it). Plus, our courses are recognised and audited by government-regulated awarding bodies.

REASON 7: What's the point of learning the science if it doesn't get translated into practical advice? Our skill is to examine complex scientific studies and translate them into easy-to-understand practical concepts for our students. This way, we deliver science-based knowledge and practical tools, helping our students make a meaningful difference in other people's lives.

REASON 8: We make science fun, and love to ignite your brain cells with new discoveries! Want to join us? Get started with our FREE Starter Nutrition Course here.
