Anyone studying Nutrition at university?

    • Thread Starter

    Hey everyone, was just wondering if anyone who is studying nutrition at uni could give me some advice on a couple of questions I have.

    I just finished studying at college, heart really wasn't in it, and finished with two low grade A levels in non-science subjects. Since the age of 16 I've been really interested in fitness and nutrition, and have read around the subject. I understand I would have to apply to a foundation course, and I'm quite interested in the one run by Anglia Ruskin university. Anyway, to get to the crux of the matter.

    I'm considering doing a level 3 qualification in nutrition, one that is credited by the AfN and run by Fitness First. Would doing this help in applying to study the subject at uni?

    Finally, If It really isn't realistic for someone with no qualifications in the sciences higher than GCSE to want to apply to study nutrition at uni, please tell me? I promise I won't be too offended
