Months of entry
Acquire the knowledge and skills needed for a career as an environmental health practitioner by analysing the five main intervention areas: housing, food safety, occupational health and safety, environmental protection and public health. You will develop your understanding of environmental stress factors and their effect on human health and safety, together with the legal and technical frameworks for controlling these risks.
The opportunity to interact with students from other vocational courses will broaden your perspective of environmental health issues, and you will have access to our state-of-the-art acoustics laboratory and our dedicated food inspection facilities to put your expertise into practice. You will also have the chance to engage in simulated sessions, including mock kitchen inspections and even take part in staged courtroom trials to see how the law operates in environmental health cases. These scenarios may help you work towards professional registration as an environmental health practitioner.
This is one of the few postgraduate environmental health courses in the UK accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), providing a direct route into the profession.
Research Excellence Framework 2014 - 20% of our research in the Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care unit is world leading or internationally excellent.
