What will I learn?

About the course

These Masters-level programmes in Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Management have been created to address the important need for up-skilling employees in advanced, specialist topics in health, safety and environmental management. They are the only courses of their kind created with and endorsed by NEBOSH at Masters-level. They offer those already working in industry and holding a NEBOSH diploma or BSc the chance to enhance their skills and techniques. Studying these courses will help students identify and resolve real issues relating to them in their day-to-day roles. This experience is enhanced by the final research-based dissertation.

The programmes are completely employer focused, using current employment to evidence achievement, and are studied part-time using e-learning modules to enable study anywhere in the UK or overseas. There are three specific pathways that can be chosen: Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Management; Occupational Health and Safety Management or Environmental Management. Each pathway can be studied either as a taught MSc or a more research-focused MRes, making it easier to tailor the course to individual needs and study-styles.

What you'll study

For MRes students, after completing the modules covering research methodology, the programme is followed by a 12 month 120 credit research project on a workplace-based topic in health, safety and/or environmental management.

The online nature of the programme means access to a stable broadband internet connection is required for access to course materials, to communicate with University staff and undertake course assessments.
