Program description

Food Science MSc

Our MSc Food Science course will give you a firm grasp on food science and the dramatic implications it can have on human health and disease. Our food science courses are ranked 2nd in the UK by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020 and the Complete University Guide 2021.

This course is taught by leading experts at the frontline of applied research, ensuring everything you learn is relevant and valued by employers. In recent years, our researchers have explored the important role of probiotics, sugar replacers and phytonutrients in foods. They’ve also helped prove the positive effects of good nutrition and the protective role it can play in reducing the risk of age-related disease outcomes.

We were awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize 2017-18 for Further and Higher Education, in recognition of our teaching and research excellence in the field of food and nutrition.
