The MSc Advanced Food Safety programme at QUB is tailored towards students who aim to or currently work within the agri-food sector. It will offer the opportunity to obtain a unique qualification in the field of food safety delivered by research-active scientists within the Institute for Global Food Security.

The major focus of the programme will be on new and emerging issues within the diverse field of food safety and it will concentrate on developments in analytical approaches used to monitor and regulate food safety with the view to protect human health.

Key topics covered will include: food fraud and traceability and the analytical methods used to detect fraud and ensure food safety and authenticity; the links between environmental chemical contaminants and biological hazards present in animal feed and human food - highlighting new emerging technologies that enable rapid and early detection of food safety incidents and diagnosis of animal diseases.

Assessment

Continuous assessment of coursework, examinations, and assessment of modules based solely on submitted work related to private individual study. A MSc will be awarded with Distinction to students who achieve a dissertation and average mark both exceeding 70 per cent, and with Commendation for marks over 60 per cent.

Opportunities for Careers

Excellent opportunities exist within agri-food companies, diagnostic research companies and regulatory testing laboratories. Graduates will also be in a position to progress to further PhD level research study.

Special Features

A major component will include the completion of a laboratory-based, food safety related research project within the Institute for Global Food Security, offering the opportunity to gain practical experience in the use of conventional and emerging bioanalytical technology platforms.

Facilities and capabilities include:
Biosensor instrumentation
Cell culture and microbiological suites
GC, HPLC and UPLC systems
Proteomic and metabolomic profiling
ICP, GC, qToF and QqQ mass spectrometers
Spectroscopic analysis
Real time PCR and surface plasmon resonance biosensor technology

Nanoscale Science and Technology research students in nanoLAB cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries of medicine, engineering and the physical sciences. This gives you the chance to thrive on interdisciplinary challenges, collaborate with industrial partners and even create your own spin-off company to commercialise the results of your research.

MPhil supervision is available in:

-Micro and nanoscale design, fabrication, manufacturing and manipulation

-Top-down and bottom-up fabrication

-Nanoscale materials and electronics

-Applications of nano and microelectronics in medical science, including cell biology, neuroscience, human genetics and ageing

-Polymers

-Self-assembly

-Chemistry of nanoscale systems

-Biomolecular engineering - microfluids, bioprobes and biosensor systems, MEMS/NEMS-based sensors and devices

Many research projects cross the disciplinary boundaries of medicine, engineering and the physical sciences. Depending on the source of funding, your project may involve collaboration with an industry partner or you may work in a team with a number of students to develop an idea to the point where, following your degree, you can create a spin-off company to commercialise the results of your research.

There are opportunities for you to develop your business awareness and skills, with training in topics such as intellectual property protection. nanoLAB also hosts regular research seminars, conferences and workshops.

HOW TO APPLY:

Use our Applicant Portal to apply for your course. We have a step-by-step guide to help you.

Research supervisor

Before you apply you need to find and contact a research supervisor. Your specific area of research will determine which graduate school you work with and how you find your research supervisor:

Start dates

There are usually three possible start dates, although in some circumstances an alternative start date can be arranged:

  • January
  • April
  • September.

There is no application closing date for this course, but specific deadlines for funding may apply. We may offer studentships to high-quality applicants from June onwards, so early application is recommended. 

We suggest international students apply at least two months before the course starts. This is so that you have enough time to make the necessary arrangements.

Deposit

If you live outside the UK/EU you must:

  • pay a deposit of £1,500
  • or submit an official letter of sponsorship

The deposit is payable after you receive an offer to study at Newcastle University. The deposit is non-refundable, but is deducted from your tuition fees when you register.
