Food Science

You are what you eat! There is more to food than how it looks, cooks and tastes. Through the study of Food Science, you could explore human anatomy, physiology, microbiology and the principles of food and nutrition. So, if you’re interested in food, health, nutrition and human biology – this could be an option for you. On related courses, you’ll develop a plethora of transferable skills such as planning and problem solving, observation and analysis, and communication. Job opportunities can be wide ranging, from working in hospitals, food developers, charities, and a range of other public and private sector organisations.
