Course Summary

The University of Nottingham’s Bachelors program in Food Science and Nutrition will give students a food and drinks industry-based understanding of what raw ingredients are, how to assess their nutritional content, and what happens to those ingredients as they are processed and/or stored.

Experts in food science and nutrition are in demand throughout several industries. In particular, graduates who can analyse and report on the physiological connections between food properties, health and health risk tend to find rewarding careers with great advancement opportunity. 

If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

Course Outline

This is a three year program for most students.

Year 1:

In your first year, you will learn about nutrition as well as the chemical and physical properties of foods, food ingredients and other materials related to the food industry. You will also explore the complex biochemical links that connect nutrition and health. You will attend both lectures and practical classes in an actual food processing facility.

Year 2:

You will become more familiar with the relationship between food, the human metabolism and the effects of diet on health and disease. You will also explore process engineering in the food industry.

Optional Placement

You have the option of taking a placement opportunity in the food and drinks industry between your second and third years.

Year 3:

You will explore social policies relating to health and nutrition, the science of nutrient gene interactions, and other advanced studies. You will also deliver a research project with the assistance of a member of staff.

Learning & Teaching

The University of Nottingham is committed to giving its students not just a theoretical understanding but a very practical education. This will assist them when they seek to transition to a career in their chosen field. In this instance, the opportunity to take a work placement in the industry is a wonderful way to develop practical skills, and to make the contacts that will later define your career.

Career Possibilities

The food and drink industry is much larger than you might think. It is the single largest manufacturing industry across Europe, and currently employs some 500,000 people just in the UK.

Nottingham graduates with a Food Science and Nutrition degree have gone on to become specifications technologists, nutritionists, quality assurance technologists, food labelling advisors as well as product and process technologists. Still others have gone to work with food standards and labelling oriented governmental agencies, or to become production managers or raw materials buyers in the industry.
