What is nutrition?

Are you interested in learning about the role of food in health? Have you thought about the study of food science? Nutritionist online courses might be just the education pathway you’ve been looking for to start a career in Australia‘s allied health industry.

Nutrition is the study of food and nutrition and its impact on human physiology. As the Australian public has become more invested in their long-term health and wellness, the demand for more knowledge and more guidance has grown.

Many Australians turn to nutritionists, dieticians or naturopaths for this guidance. These roles, however, are not the only career opportunities available to you in this industry. There are multiple areas in the industry that you can choose to explore after completing a course on-campus or through online learning.

Nutritionist online courses

If you are considering embarking on a career in the field of nutrition it is essential to choose nutrition degrees or courses that will qualify you to one day apply for accreditation with a nationally recognised organisation such as the Nutrition Society of Australia or the Dietitian Association of Australia.

There are plenty of nutritionist online courses that can lead to roles as an assistant to a qualified nutritionist or dietitian in private, public or community health environments. Those who wish to work as fully qualified nutrition professionals can alternatively complete an Advanced Diploma or Bachelor of Nutrition Science.

For those who enjoy the biochemistry behind the industry and really want to immerse themselves in the science, a master of dietetics is possible. To be eligible for this qualification you must first successfully complete a related bachelor’s degree.

The course will focus on providing you with the foundation knowledge in nutrition principles required to succeed in the industry. A specialised certification in sports nutrition is also possible. Certificates and short courses in nutrition usually have no entry requirements.
