This programme of study is also offered on a part-time basis. Please consult the Registrar’s website for more information pertaining to courses offered by the University.
Students are required to write a dissertation based on research work of an advanced and original nature performed by them during the Course. The dissertation, to which 80 credits are assigned, will describe this research and present results and conclusions in a scholarly manner.
The dissertation will generally be laboratory/field-based (i.e. experimental/observational) in nature although in specific cases it would be acceptable for the work to be based on literature research, provided that an original contribution is made (e.g. meta-analysis, modelling etc). The dissertation must be based on work of a sufficiently advanced nature performed by the student during the course, and should produce results that are publishable in the mainstream scientific literature. The work should demonstrate that through the project, the student has gained experience in Food Science research and is able to set up a research problem, plan experiments and/or observations, present and analyse data and draw logical conclusions from the results obtained.
Students are also required to register for HSC5111 (Research Methods for Health Care Professionals) or for FEH5100 (Modelling Techniques in Health Sciences) and FEH5101 (Quantative Tools for Sustainable Food and Energy in the Food Chain), depending on the area of study in which their research is being carried out.
Applicants interested in pursuing a Master of Science in Food Sciences and Nutrition (by Research) are strongly advised to refer to the instructions available here.
