The Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) is one of the UK’s longest established, and most respected higher education institution and thought leader in nutritional therapy and lifestyle sciences.  This is an exciting time at the Institute as we look to grow and develop new programmes and awards and you’ll have the opportunity to join a fun, hard-working, experienced and nurturing team, and get involved with activities and developmental projects across the organisation.


At ION we aim to create a stimulating, challenging and rewarding learning experience, through sharing a unique fusion of education, research and professional practice and inspiring our students and staff to enrich our communities.
