Food and Environmental Safety (MSc, PGDip, PGCert)


Course Description

This specialised course will be of particular interest if you aspire to a career as a food examiner. It’s only available part time and is designed to be flexible so that you can fit study around existing work arrangements, whether you’re employed in the public sector or commercial industry.

Modules are normally delivered with some introductory teaching for two-four days, followed by self-directed home study for a few months and concluding with assessment exercises. You’ll take six core modules: Food Microbiology; Ecology of Food and Water Borne Pathogens; National Surveillance Practices and Outbreak Investigation; Sampling to Assess Microbiological Safety of Foods; Physiology
of Food Pathogens; and Food Law.

You’ll also produce either a library based project dissertation or undertake a work placement. Many of our students already work as environmental health officers or technical enforcement officers, or are involved with hygiene and quality assurance in the food industry. Completing this course means you’ll be equally well equipped to work in food quality and assurance.
