Reviews and tips for UNIB20014

Really enjoyed this subject, if you're interested in global health and healthy diets and want to boost your WAM then this is perfect. Not much time is required to do well and as someone else already said, you get a A4 cheat sheet in the exam.

This is a great subject to take to get a holistic view of current trends in the food industry and how it is impacting our health, the economy, and the environment. A lot of it overlaps with Food for a Healthy Planet 1 but there is no need for any background knowledge. The tutors are helpful in identifying relevant information for the exam, and we even got one of our final exam essay questions at our last tutorial.

very interesting subject!! No need science background, you can followed it quite easily, as long as you listen to the lecture, because the lecture gives many bit information that might covered in textbook confusedly. so, listen to the lecture will help, and study from the tutorial slide for the final exam. The most interesting part is sugar, trans fat, salt, an wine, and allergies (wine and allergies in forum). Global nutrition is also quite interesting,. But, as this is breadth subject, marks for the essay might a bit tough. They will mark you for reference and bibliography, and you need to cover everything you need to cover in 1000 words essay. Quite tough, but very interesting!!!

Easy subject as it is catered to anyone of any background/ability. You're allowed to bring in an A4 double side cheat sheet into the exam. First section of the course very interesting about salt, sugar, carbohydrates and dietary fibre/resistant starch, and also very easy to learn. The supply and demand section of the course is very boring, watch the lectures on double speed so the lecturers voice sounds normal. Very well coordinated, and the tutors actually listen to you/want to help you

As this was a Uni Breadth, the subject encompassed a whole range of different aspects regarding food for a healthy planet, including nutrition, poverty, commerce, GM foods and more. I found the nutrition aspect very interesting, as it delved into the basic health aspects and was applicable to your own life. However, I found the sections about supply/demand and developing GM foods very boring (though it is more about rote learning). You don't really need to bother buying the notes book as it is supplied as a PDF on the LMS for free. Make sure to take good notes during the semester, as the exam allows you to bring in a two sided A4 page of notes! Keep an open mind about what to expect and you will enjoy this subject!
