Course summary

On this highly practical course we will provide you with the necessary scientific understanding of food science and human nutrition to take the next step into your chosen career. You’ll be introduced to food safety and quality, food sensory analysis, new product development, food processing and preservation, as well as applied and practical nutrition skills and clinical nutrition and dietetics. The course also offers flexibility as you can opt for a specialist pathway of study after your first year - meaning you can either continue with BSc Food Science and Nutrition, or choose to specialise in BSc Human Nutrition which has an emphasis on developing proficiencies in nutrition specific professions and is accredited with the Association for Nutrition. If you chose to follow the Human Nutrition pathway you will have the opportunity to apply for Direct Entry to the UKVRN at Associate status. Whichever pathway you choose, there will be extensive opportunities to gain real-world experience and apply your knowledge with a six-week work based placement in your second year and the option of completing an industrial placement in third year. On graduation you will be ready and able to contribute to the food and health agenda in roles spanning product development and quality assurance through to procurement, sales and marketing. 92% of students said they had the opportunity to explore ideas and concepts in depth (National Student Survey, 2019)
