Food Development and Innovation BSc (Hons)
I originally applied to do a psychology degree at another university but I changed my mind. At school, I did an Extended Project Qualification in psychology and got bored. I changed my EPQ to write a cook book and loved it. I decided I wanted to do something I enjoyed rather than something purely academic and the Food Development and Innovation course really appealed.
I wanted to do something businessy but also food related so that is why I chose this course rather than Culinary Arts Management. I am interested in going into food marketing or buying rather than becoming a food development chef.
I love the course. It is so closed-knit and we are all friends. Because UCB is a small university, there is more of a community. You don’t feel you are just a number. Our lecturers are lovely. If you have an idea they will take it on board.
Food Development and Innovation is such a broad course. I want to go into business but I am not really sure where, so it is good to get a broad view of the industry and the opportunities.
