FoSaMed – Enhancing Food Safety in the Mediterranean

The Fosamed Master

Are you ready to become a FoSaMed student?

The main result of the FoSaMed project is a new Master’s Degree on Food Safety, whose first edition will begin in October 2022.

The Master lasts two-years (4 semesters) and offers frontal lessons, hands-on practical lessons in newly installed food safety labs, online courses on the project’s e-learning space and a final internship to experience a real “labour world” opportunity where to challenge the new skills developed.

At the end of the Master students obtain 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System).

The structure of the Master

Master students will be taught advanced and integrated multidisciplinary approaches and methodologies and will be expected to be able to further develop their knowledge, as well as problem-solving directed skills.

The new Master will have a modular structure and will be implemented in the four Moroccan partner universities, each of them being responsible for specific modules in the second year.

Each of the four Moroccan HEI partners will be equipped with modern food safety labs to ensure hand-on sessions and practical activities. In order to grant to the country a higher coverage of skills, each University will specialize in one field and these labs with be equipped along with this specialization. These new food safety labs will be intensively used both for teaching and learning (by teachers and students), as well as for research and possible extension activities and services to the local communities (by researchers).


Recruitment Policy


A recruitment policy promoting gender equality will be implemented in order to select the first 60 students.

The FoSaMed consortium is working hard to assure a high quality Master programme. Further information on the timeline, access requirements and the details of each module will be made available in the next few months.
