Programme description
Graduates will be equipped with the analytical and communication skills to contribute
to humanity’s efforts to achieve and sustain food security during the 21st century.
This programme is not suitable for applicants pursuing a career in food science or
food safety/hygiene or related areas. Please read the programme description and
ensure you understand the nature of the programme before you apply. Applicants
who do not show a clear understanding of the programme will not be accepted.
Food security has become a critically important issue for societies around the globe.
Interactions between demographics, changes in diet, trade liberalisation, an
increased focus on conservation, technological innovations including GM crops, the
impact of climate change and new responses to climate change resource limitations
(particularly in terms of energy, water and nutrients) all affect food security.
With such a rapid growth in this area, there is an increasing demand for qualified
experts to contribute to policy creation and legislation in food production and the
supply chain.
This unique MSc offers students the scope and multidisciplinary approach to address
all of these issues, as well as an understanding of the technical, agronomic,
environmental, economic and socio-political factors that influence food security.
This programme is run in collaboration with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC).
Applicants who applied after 12 December 2016 receiving an offer of admission,
either unconditional or conditional, may be required to pay a tuition fee deposit.
Please see the fees and costs section for more information.

Food security has become a critically important issue for societies around the globe. Interactions between demographics, changes in diet, trade liberalisation, an increased focus on conservation, technological innovations including GM crops, the impact of climate change and new responses to climate change resource limitations (particularly in terms of energy, water and nutrients) all affect food security. With such a rapid growth in this area, there is an increasing demand for qualified experts to contribute to policy creation and legislation in food production and the supply chain. This unique MSc offers students the scope and multidisciplinary approach to address all of these issues, as well as an understanding of the technical, agronomic, environmental, economic and socio-political factors that influence food security. This programme is run in collaboration with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC). Applicants who applied after 12 December 2016 receiving an offer of admission, either unconditional or conditional, may be required to pay a tuition fee deposit. Please see the fees and costs section for more information.
