The Food Science Summer School is a free event 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.

Travel costs will not be covered by Harper Adams University
