The quality and safety of food has never been higher in the public awareness and what we eat has a huge impact on our health and wellbeing. Scientists are needed to promote healthy eating, ensure that food remains nutritious and safe and to oversee regulation of the food industry; this course aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to be able to that.
This is a top-up course which allows students from a suitable Diploma qualification in the area of Food and Nutrition to study at level 3 and obtain a Bachelor of Science in Food and Nutrition.
We currently have a progression agreement with Hong Kong University SPACE for students with the Higher Diploma in Nutrition and Food Management to transfer to our Food and Nutrition BSc (Hons) Top Up course.WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

- hands-on experience of a wide range of techniques in our well equipped laboratories to develop the analytical and practical skills required by employers;
- laboratory work that enables the development of experimental, data handling and reporting skills required in science careers;
- lecturers with experience in areas such as food safety and public health to make sure you get up-to-date information and examples and to help you begin to establish your professional networks;
- well established academic and practical support systems for students.
In this Top Up year you will start to apply your knowledge in the area of Food and Nutrition to case studies based on real life and current issues in nutrition and public health promotion, food safety and inspection and industrial analysis. You will also carry out an independent research project.
