These online courses are focused on weight management and obesity care include, the MSc, PGDip, and PGCert validated by London South Bank University.
PG Modules are parts of the online Postgraduate Courses in weight management and obesity care which can be taken individually, providing greater flexibility for your studies.
These online courses give you the content of the PG Modules and CPD points without formal assessment. This flexible learning method allows you to develop your skills in weight management and obesity care.
Our online short courses give you an overview of different aspects of weight management and obesity care, so you can immediately apply the skills learnt, in the clinic.
All of my staff who have completed the Postgraduate modules and the short courses have found them excellent and it has changed our clinical practice.
SensationalT. K. - Fitness professional, Weight & Fitness Essentials - Professional Short Course
Probably the best course I have ever done. Went into lots of detail. It covered things from an obese persons stand point whereas most courses out there are more generic. Sensational. Thank you.

The CCH courses make a significant contribution to the clinical education of practitioners. The modules are evidence-based, relevant and of high quality and should be recommended to all practitioners involved in obesity prevention and management.
I am able to relate more to my clientsR. F. - Weight Management Practitioner, PGDip in Obesity Care and Management
From the course so far I developed my professional practice by gaining a better understanding of the causes, consequences and behavioural aspects of obesity, so I am able to relate more to my clients and provide them with more information to support an individual who is going through a weight loss journey.
