Months of entry
The primary objective of the MSc Food Bioscience degree is to provide a scientifically underpinned food programme that educates science graduates in the classical aspects of food science.
The programme introduces you to how the food industry works and offers the appropriate skills required for employment in the food and related industries.
As part of the programme, you will undertake a laboratory-based research project: the project is intended to develop independent investigative and practical skills. The key element is to undertake independent evaluation of a food specific issue. While a range of topics are available you are actively encouraged to propose your own projects based on individual interests.
The programme is categorised by the Institute of Food Science and Technology (IFST) and also by the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS).
MSc Food Bioscience meets REHIS’ entry requirements for training as a food officer with local authorities.
