Subsequent to the huge amount of interest in an intensive weekend nutrition seminar, the Mac-Nutrition Mentorship is finally here! The 2-day Student Mentorship will take place on the 8th & 9th of February.
WHAT is it and WHO is it for?
The Student Mentorship programme has been developed to allow students who are currently (or have been within the last 6 months) studying nutrition, sports science, S&C or a related area to gain a unique insight into practicing as a successful nutritionist. The weekend combines nutrition seminars, lectures and practical workshops as well as resources to go away with, to give you a hugely applied focus complimenting (and perhaps debating!) theory learnt within your taught education programme. Please note, you must be able to provide a valid student card/proof of when you completed your course in order to be eligible for the Student Mentorship.
What will you get out of it?
As well as topping up your nutritional knowledge, the mentorship weekend will primarily teach you what you don't necessarily learn in the classroom; how to work with real-life people in the real world! Do you want to know how to set up a fully individualised nutrition plan from start to finish? Do you want to know how to make yourself more employable in such a competitive field? Do you want to broaden your knowledge and skills to prepare you for working with a wide variety of clients?… and do you want to learn how to do all of this from the UK's leading nutritional consultancy? If the answer is yes, then the Mac-Nutrition Student Mentorship is definitely for you!

How do I apply for a place? – Application Deadline
Places are limited (20) as we are keen for this programme to be highly intensive, allowing more 1-2-1 and group contact to the Mac-Nutrition Team for personal support and mentoring. We also want to be able to offer this mentorship to the best possible candidates therefore we are including an application process (downloadable at the bottom of this page). Places will be allocated based on merit, on a first come, first served basis and therefore applications will close once all positions have been filled; get your application in early to increase your chances of success. There are currently 180 of you who are on the Mentorship mail list with a total of only 30 places (10 spaces on the Mac-Nutrition Mentorship for Professionals).
How will I know I have a place? And how do I make payment?
You will receive confirmation of your application within 72 hours of us receiving it.
If you are successful you will receive an electronic acceptance letter, which we ask that you fill in and return along with your payment, within 10 days secure your place. Details of how to make payment will be included in your acceptance letter. Once both elements are received you will be sent our Mac-Nutrition Mentorship Welcome Pack with full details of the weekend, including logistical details and information on accommodation.
Will I need to prove I am a student? And do you offer a student discounts?
We have significantly reduced the price of a student ticket in order to make this course accessible so no further discount can be attained. However over the weekend we will be offering all attendees the chance of a refundable discount in the form of a competition. If attendees are willing to film a testimonial for the day the best 4 candidates and videos will win £50!
