Course summary


You can tailor your Food Policy research degree to suit your own interests. We will provide extensive support and training to help you succeed being part of the School of Health Sciences.

Based in our Centre for Food Policy, you will become join a vibrant and dynamic research community. Explore various aspects of how policy-making processes work and how they reflect and shape the nature of food supply and consumption.

The Centre’s researchers are especially interested in the policy place of food in society. Along with the impact on health, environment, social justice and economy.

Your MPhil/PhD aims to help you gain the skills to become a professional researcher. You will contribute original work which will extend the current knowledge base and influence food policy.


You will initially be registered for an MPhil award. Promotion to registration to PhD is not automatic, but contingent on the satisfactory outcome of a review process. This normally takes place towards the end of the first year of registration for full-time candidates. Part-time candidates will have their review process towards the end of the second year.

You submit a report to an academic panel and present at the annual research colloquium.

If the outcome is satisfactory, you will be upgraded to a PhD. The programme will conclude with the submission of research in the form of a PhD thesis. Attendance at a viva voce examination is also required. This will be in front of at least two examiners, at least one of whom will be external to City.
