Course content

Acquire the knowledge and skills to prepare you for a career as an environmental health practitioner by fully analysing the five main intervention areas: housing; food safety; occupational health and safety; environmental protection and public health. This involves understanding the environmental stress factors and their effect on human health and safety, together with the legal and technical frameworks for controlling these risks.

We offer 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.

The opportunity to interact with students from other vocational courses will broaden your perspective of environmental health issues.

You'll have access to our state-of-the-art acoustics laboratories and our dedicated food inspection facilities. There are also opportunities for you to engage in work-related activities which will help you work towards professional registration as an environmental health practitioner.
