    Hello, I have a few questions about the food science course as I will be going to uni in 2017.

    1) What is the difference between food science, nutrition and nutrition and dietetics? The entry requirement for those course vary and I don't really know why.

    2) Does food science involve learning about biology in great depth. I know that it will involve some but I was thinking it covers more about how food is made etc..

    3) People say that doing a biochemistry degree is better off if you want to get in the food industry. However, I don't really like doing the course just on biology and chemistry and I don't feel like I am interested enough.

    4) What is it like studying food science at univeristy ? For example at King's , Nottingham, any experience would help.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Our Nutrition and Dietetics Course takes 4 years to complete and graduates from the course are entitled to apply for Registration in Dietetics with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). More information about our Nutrition and Dietetics course is available online http://www.chester.ac.uk/undergradua...-and-dietetics

    Our Human Nutrition course takes 3 years to complete and is accredited by the Association for Nutrition (AfN). This accelerates the process by which our graduates become registered nutritionists (R.Nutr.). Find out more about Human Nutrition: http://www.chester.ac.uk/undergraduate/human-nutrition

    On both the course pages there are contact details for lecturers who teach on the course, feel free to get in touch with them as they will be able to give you more information about the course and the differences between studying Nutrition and Dietetics and Human Nutrition.

    I hope that helps
