I gradauted from my BSc in Biology 4 years ago and am looking to move into Food Science - which means potentially a Master's. After a good look around, there's a few options in order of reputation:

Leeds - £9,000
Reading - £7,000
Manchester Met - £6,000
Cardiff Met - £4,200
Chester - £4,860

As I only have around £15,000 saved including the postgrad loan, If I choose Leeds I will have to work around 15 hours a week whilst studying, but if I chose Cardiff Met I could focus only on study, meaning I could likely achieve a better grade.

- Do you think the reputation of the Uni or the course grade is more important in the long run?

- Does anyone know if any other Universities are well regarded for Food Science aside from Leeds and Reading?

Thank you!

Which university did you opt for?
I thought it would be Reading all the way for Food Tech. It has a very long, strong history and is strongly represented in the supermarket food tech world.
