Program description

Food Science - MRes (Part-time)

Why study this course?

Our Food Science MRes degree is a year-long, 180-credit degree that will help you to conduct your own research and introduce you to the practice of teaching in higher education.

You'll conduct a research project in an area of food science of your choosing. You'll also gain experience of teaching and learning in higher education - this includes spending 120 hours shadowing teachers and assisting them with their teaching of food science modules at the University.

Our Food Science MRes degree course will help you in working on a self-directed Program of research, supported by a London Met lecturer who is an expert in the field.

Our Food Science MRes will give you the opportunity to research areas such as food analysis, food microbiology, safety, food safety, quality management, food preservation, fermentation and new product development. The research project will focus on one of these areas, but cross-discipline research projects and food industry linked ideas are also encouraged.

Your supervisor will be able to advise you on career development and the relevant professional bodies to help support progression in your chosen field. You will be encouraged and supported to attend at least one relevant conference and produce at least one publishable paper.

  • A minimum upper second-class degree in a relevant subject area as your MRes project topic
