These five-year courses replace some of our former foundation degree and extended foundation degree programmes. Candidates will be assessed at the end of their first year of study and progress to either an ordinary degree (BSc) or Honours Degree (BSc Hons) The variety of food and drink available to us is continually increasing in its quality, diversity, and interest. This course will help you develop the skills to be at the heart of the food development process adding value to a complex and exciting food industry.
