Our direct-entry Bachelor of Food and Nutrition Science (Honours) provides high achieving students with automatic entry into an honours year, provided a 4. 5 grade point average (GPA) is maintained.

The sustainable production of quality food and nutrition—fundamental to human health and wellbeing—is a thriving, multi-billion-dollar global industry. This degree will equip you to enter this exciting and rewarding field with advanced capability and an employability edge.  

Like the Bachelor of Food and Nutrition Science, the direct-entry Bachelor of Food and Nutrition Science (Honours) prepares you to educate and innovate in food. During the first three years, you will:

  • tackle global issues like food security and population health to help feed the world into the future
  • understand food systems and production from ‘farm-gate to fork’
  • gain hands-on experience through 120 hours of placement in a food, nutrition or health organisation
  • learn how to design, formulate, produce, package and market foods
  • develop the skills to use and alter food to combat diet-related health issues
  • experiment with chemical composition and flavour combinations in the lab
  • explore ways of developing sustainable, nutritious, safe and healthy food supplies.

Then, in your honours year, you’ll deepen your knowledge through a major research project, acquiring significant research skills along the way.

You’ll graduate with the food and nutrition world at your feet. The bachelor degree’s same vast range of career paths will of course be open to you including a pathway to dietetics. With your additional honours qualification—and the enhanced capability it signifies—you’ll immediately stand out to potential employers.
