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.

Student | BSc Nutrition
I chose to study nutrition because it combines my interests in both food and health. I also like the diversity of the subject and the fact there's job opportunities for nutrition graduates in a variety of different food-related areas.
