UCR Food Science graduate progresses to postgraduate study

University Centre Reaseheath Food Science alumni Olivia, who completed her degree in 2021, shares what she enjoyed most about studying at University Centre Reaseheath, what she is doing now, and why she would recommend the course to anyone who has an interest in food science.

I really enjoyed my time studying Food Science at University Centre Reaseheath. The modules which were of most interest to me during the course were Food Biochemistry as well as a lab-based research project we completed, which was a great opportunity to learn how to use testing equipment within a food environment.

All the modules that were taught throughout the course were invaluable though in helping me to achieve a great overall understanding of the food industry.

I am currently studying a Masters in Food Science and Innovation at the University of Chester, which was possible thanks to the skills and knowledge I gained during my time at University Centre Reaseheath.

Additionally, because of the support I received from the staff and lecturers at UCR, I was able to develop wider skills such as my confidence in academic writing and research, as well as my personal skills too.

Once I have completed my Masters, I am hoping to find a relevant job within the food industry or progress on to further studies within the food sector.

My time at University Centre Reaseheath was thoroughly enjoyable and the support from staff was invaluable. I am so glad that I studied Food Science at UCR and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
