Undergraduate degrees

The food industry is rapidly growing on a global scale. There is an international need for graduates who understand food chemistry, production, processing and storage, as well as the effects that food and diet have on our bodies and health. As a food science or nutrition graduate you could go on to work in manufacturing, nutritional therapy, quality assurance, product development or research.   

We also contribute modules to the interdisciplinary Natural Sciences degree, which is taught across Science and Environment.

"Everything I’ve learnt on my course will definitely be translated into my career, especially the practical knowledge; I’ve already applied a lot of that into my placement."
