Overview

##

This course considers the ways in which the food industry has evolved over the past 70 years and has created the industry of convenience we have today.

Introduced though a case study from Marks and Spencer, you will see how new innovations have changed the way we shop. You will also consider the issue of food waste; in a world where thousands suffer from malnutrition and starvation you’ll consider the attitudes in your own society to this global problem.

This course is part of the Going to University collection which has been specifically designed for students at schools and colleges. They provide a taster of undergraduate study at the University of Leeds and help students to decide which subject to study at university.

Completion of the courses will also enhance students’ university applications.

The courses can also be used as a teachers’ classroom enrichment resource.

Courses in this collection are also great for people that want an introduction in the specific subjects discussed in each course.

Rose is taking this course right now, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
I think this course was aimed too low and did not have enough new information.

Plus the focus on beer was not interesting to me.
