Course summary

Modern consumers take food very much for granted, giving little thought to what it is and where it has come from. Food is produced by people with specialist know-how, and the food industry has a constant need for appropriately qualified graduates.You will gain a detailed understanding of the food industry, its place in society and relationship to consumers. You will explore the nature of food and how food ingredients behave when processed. You will learn what food is, why we eat it, how it is produced and processed, how the food supply chain operates, food trends, and consumer behaviour.The course will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to develop a career in the industry; anywhere from food processing and manufacture to food retailing.Students who undertake the BSc degree (also referred to as an Ordinary degree) will typically complete their award in four years (including an industrial placement year), with successful completion of the award graded as either a pass (with commendation) or pass. The main difference between this and a BSc (Hons) degree, is the reduced volume of study and assessment required by the BSc degree. The BSc degree and the BSc (Hons) degree share a common first year, which provides an opportunity for transfer between the two degree types subject to academic performance.4 years (full-time) including a one-year work placement. A three year programme is available for applicants with at least two years, full-time relevant work experience. Please contact Admissions for further information on this option.
