No. You can complete your studies completely via correspondence (distance education) study. Everything you need to complete your studies is included in your course pack including your assessment. We do however recognise that students can sometimes feel isolated when studying via correspondence and we are therefore committed to providing constant technical and educational assistance from nutrition, health and education professionals via phone, email, fax or online.
Depending on the course of study you undertake, you will be assessed via a range of methods including written exam, written project or professional online interview or tutorial and assessment. You are also welcome to contact us for assistance if you require assistance with any of your exam questions. Anybody not wishing to complete an exam paper is welcome to undertake the course of study. There are no additional fees for course exams.
The short answer is no. In order to become a qualified nutritionist or dietitian (and legally provide paid nutritional advice for health and medical conditions) you must first undertake a comprehensive program of tertiary studies through university or private college which commonly take a number of years to complete and currently cost in the vicinity of AU$15 000-$25 000. Accredited and Registered Nutritionists and Dietitians are also required to show proof of undertaking ongoing education each year in order to continue their registration (Beck Health & Nutrition courses are commonly used for this purpose).
Courses offered by Beck Health & Nutrition offer a stepping stone for individuals wanting to learn about nutrition either for their personal or professional interests. Our courses also allow people who already work in the health and nutrition industry to broaden their knowledge and keep up to date with latest research and health advice and are approved for continuing education points (CPE) for re-registration of health practitioners.

Selected short courses offered by Beck Health & Nutrition offer national accreditation for professional development both from Fitness Australia and the Australian Traditional Medicine Society. If you are looking to study nutrition at a career path level it is important to note that professional accreditation and regulation of nutrition professionals in Australia is increasingly reliant upon industry bodies such as the Nutrition Society of Australia and the Dietitians Association of Australia. This industry regulation generally requires university level study and does not directly recognise nutrition courses under the nationally recognised training (vocational training) system without additional university study. Registration and accreditation of nutrition professionals is a very complex area which is constantly changing and evolving. If you have particular questions or concerns regarding this matter please feel free to contact us.
Research constantly confirms that courses delivered completely online have poorer educational outcomes for students. While we are committed to providing constant online academic support (as well as phone support), printed course texts and offline media such as CDs allow students to undertake their studies anywhere, without being reliant upon internet access. When studying via correspondence it is vital to have complete, detailed information available to you. Beware of distance courses which rely too heavily on note form or presentation formats such as PowerPoint, such media is only helpful if you are in a very well supported lecture environment.
