Written by Endeavour College of Natural Health | 10 June, 2020

Have you ever looked down at your meal and wondered what exactly is in it? We’re talking about the ingredients that you can’t see. What exactly is going on inside your body and how does nutrition play a role?

The media is full of nutritional advice and information, some of it is factual however, a lot of it can be poor advice that may do more harm than good. Discover foundational information of human nutrition with the Undergraduate Certificate in Building Health Through Nutrition.

Pathway into a health science degree

The Undergraduate Certificate in Building Health Through Nutrition can act as a pathway directly into Endeavour’s Health Science degrees, to seek credits into another allied health qualification, or to upskill in preparation for new job opportunities. This course has been structured to provide graduates with a well-rounded set of skills which can be applied far beyond the field of study.

Gain a deep understanding of human nutrition

The Undergraduate Certificate in Building Health Through Nutrition is a new short course exclusively offered by Endeavour College. This short-course allows students to obtain a comprehensive understanding of human nutrition and introduces students to food-based science, including food spoilage, food additives, and natural toxins.

Fee support while studying
