We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The MSc in Advanced Food Safety is tailored towards students who aim to, or currently work within the agri-food industry and related sectors, offering a unique qualification in the fields of food safety and security.
The Institute for Global Food Security (IGFS), is one of the University’s four Global Research Institutes, which is leading the world in addressing one of the greatest challenges – how to ensure the safety of our food.
The world’s food supply is reducing. Its production is under increasing pressure, and so safety issues are more likely to arise.

I chose Queens University Belfast for many reasons, one of the reasons is that Queen’s is well known as one of the world’s best universities in terms of its research quality and its membership of the Russell Group so Queens has an excellent track record.
I chose the MSc in Advanced Food Safety for a few reasons, the most determining factor was that food safety problems are becoming a serious issue and I would like to improve my knowledge in food safety in order to overcome these problems.
I have really enjoyed living and studying in Belfast for a few reasons, one of them is living cost which is the cheapest when compared to other cities in the UK, further more when I go into the city centre or public places, I just need to walk because Belfast is a relatively compact city. For my friends who have a similar interest to me, particularly in food safety, I highly recommend you to pursue your higher education at Queen’s due to its complete facilities
