H 066 451 Master programme Safety in the Food Chain


Brief description

Designed with the aim to provide a profound academic education programme concerning all areas of food safety.

Safety in the Food Chain (SIFC) is an international MSc study programme, which was designed with the aim to provide a profound academic education programme concerning all areas of food safety and to offer a study course which combines all expertises existing at Europe’s Universities at a high level.

This study programme especially targets students who hold a BSc degree in “Food Science”. Students will gain special knowledge as well as practical skills in the area of food safety, risk identification, risk assessment, and risk communication.

The MSc SIFC is structured into 3 Modules and a Master thesis of 30 ECTS credits each. The first module is Module A and consists of basic lectures and exercises in the area of food science. Module B deals with special subjects in the fields of food safety. Students choose two modules B, in which one has to be obtained at a partner university. The master thesis can be absolved at every SIFC-University. This individual structure of the MSc SIFC offers a new international perspective for students and facilitates movement between different universities.

The MSc SIFC was developed by the 5 original members of the ELLS (Euroleague for Life Sciences) Universities and the University of Ljubljana.
