Course summary

Extended degree programmes are a means of accessing degree study should you not meet the entry requirements for honours degree programmes. These five-year courses replace some of our former foundation degree and extended foundation degree programmes.

Providing a growing population with safe, wholesome, nutritious and affordable food, while addressing environmental concerns and limited resources is high on the UK’s agenda. The food industry (and the supporting land-based sector) is constantly evolving to meet the expectations of the consumer. Increasingly, people are becoming better informed and more demanding about their food and its quality. However, right across the UK’s food industry, there is a shortage of suitably qualified and experienced graduates with a technical understanding of food. At Harper Adams we offer food courses which develop multi-skilled graduates who will move ahead with the industry in a range of exciting and rewarding careers.5 years (full-time) including a one-year work placement.
