About

Key facts
  • The UK Midlands region has strong historic links to brewing and our campus is situated just a short drive away from the famous brewing centre of Burton-upon-Trent
  • The school of Biosciences is one of the largest and strongest schools of its kind in the UK. The school is ranked the no.1 research environment in the UK (for agriculture, veterinary and food science) in the 2014 REF (Research Excellence Framework). 97% of our work (in the Schools of Biosciences and Veterinary Medicine and Science ) was judged to be of international quality.
  • A purpose-built dedicated Brewing and Bioenergy Building opened on campus in 2011
  • The Sutton Bonington Campus is a self-contained, 16-hectare site in the beautiful countryside of South Nottinghamshire and it offers a number of dedicated facilities applicable to this course.
Course delivery

75% of course materials are delivered by distance learning, designed to be studied part-time and to fit around your work.

The latest innovations in web-based learning are used to ensure an interactive feel to the course and promote deeper learning of the scientific principles of brewing – these innovations include:

  • e-lectures, featuring streamed video presentations by brewing science academics on key subjects; the slide presentation and a written transcript of the lecture can also be downloaded.
  • structured learning through a combination of virtual directed reading, self tests of understanding, animations and video footage of processes and a virtual library.
  • group work and directed discussion events via dedicated chat rooms.
  • one week per semester (based on 20 credits of module study) is spent at an intensive residential course held at The University of Nottingham. This provides the opportunity to develop theories and practice through traditional face-to face teaching techniques such as lectures, seminars, workshops, laboratory practicals, industrial visits and tutorials. Typically, a formal assessment (usually a written exam) is taken on completion of the residential course.
