Food Science, Safety and Health


Course Description

The MSc/PG Diploma course in Food Science, Safety and Health is tailored to take advantage of the excellent career prospects available in the food industry.

As a student on the course you can develop the knowledge and practical skills that are associated with key topics of food science through studying core modules in food chemistry, food microbiology and the management of food quality. The course is closely aligned with the needs of the industry and is accredited by the Institute of Food Science and Technology, UK.
