This is the only master’s course in sensory science in the UK. You will acquire skills and experience on completion which will significantly enhance your employability either within a research environment or in industry. The intensive, modular nature of the part-time route also makes it easily accessible if you are currently working in the food and allied industries.
In addition to course fees, both full-time and part-time options require industrial support and sponsorship for completion of your research project.Key facts
