I love the science aspect of this course.
My favourite subject in school was
biology. I was always fascinated by all
of these different food trends in the
media and what my parents said and my
grandparents said and it always just
interests me about food choices,
different types of diets. When people
think about nutrition they often think
about nutritional therapy and diets, some
why people do and don’t eat and how
that results in ill health. And
nutrition is actually a lot broader than
that and encompasses the areas of food
science, Public Health, Clinical Nutrition.
You see it all the time
“Oh pasteurised eggs” in the grocery
store, but do you actually know what that
means? So to actually like divulge into
that has been really fun for me.
Students get an opportunity to gain some
experience in a health-related field,
working with different populations. And
obviously from a nutritional point of
view that it’s actually quite important.
When I graduate I am now applying for
Masters programs in viticulture and
oenology. I thought I’d be just a
nutritionist, but finding the love of
science and I have a passion for wine
and wine-making so I decided to go for
that. I’d definitely recommend this course
to anyone who loves learning about science and food, it’s really interesting and I
really enjoy it.
