I thoroughly enjoyed studying for my Diploma in Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching with IHS (despite two bouts of homeschooling during my year of studying!). The materials were easy to follow and the teaching gave the right level of detail to be able to confidently embark on a career afterwards. The lecturers and staff were all friendly and accessible throughout the course.
