Food Science Summer School 2019

8 - 10 July 2019

The Food Science Summer School is designed to provide year 12 students with an opportunity to explore the topic of food science and develop understanding of the fascinating and rewarding careers the food industry has to offer.

If you enrol for the Summer School at Harper Adams University you will take part in hands-on food product development, visit a food factory, explore the food chain from farm to fork, and participate in underpinning lectures that shed light on the absorbing world of food science and technology.

After your Summer School experience, you will have a whole new approach to the food you eat and where it comes from.

You will also have enjoyed an immersive university experience- staying on campus for two nights to learn, live, eat, sleep and socialise as a student.


How much does the Summer School cost?

The Food Science Summer School is free of charge and includes full board accommodation (room in halls of residence and meals in the university refectory) for the entire period of the summer school, Monday lunch time until Wednesday lunch time, inclusive.

Will I find the Summer School useful?

The answer depends very much on you, your academic interests and your career intentions. If you are interested in food and would like to understand more of food science and technology and want to know more about careers in the food industry then the Summer School is definitely for you.

At Harper Adams University we would like to receive applications from Year 12 students who have intellectual curiosity and enjoy learning about the world they live in and the food they eat. Applicants will be required to provide a personal statement explaining their interest in food and the food industry.

Below are some of the comments from our Food Science Summer School 2018:

I enjoyed the practicals, talking to the business men and women and the conversations with lecturers the most (as well as meeting the really lovely ambassadors).

I enjoyed the product development and sensory evaluation the most. I also enjoyed all of the lectures as these have cleared up my queries that I wanted to find out more about.

Loved it! I loved the welcoming experience as well as the student ambassadors. I loved my experience of being independent in university accommodation as well as the experience of visiting the factories.
