    The food industry is an exciting field in which to work, but its diverse nature presents very particular challenges. This programme aims to provide prospective managers with both advanced management and specialist knowledge.

    It has a management orientation, and a strong consumer behaviour and marketing focus, whilst also developing the skills needed to ensure the safety, acceptability and nutritional adequacy of the food supply.

    You will receive a high-quality, vocational education, which is intellectually rigorous and up-to-date, as well as relevant to the future needs of managers, executives and professionals in the food industry. The currency and relevance of the programme is ensured by including a number of outside speakers from, for instance, the food industry and government departments.

    Previous students have gone on to work for major multinational food companies, airlines and consultancies, some reaching very senior positions. Others have taken up research posts, or have gone on to complete PhDs, either at Surrey or elsewhere

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
