Course content

This course is aimed at those who already hold a degree or qualification in a related subject and wish to enter a career as an Environmental Health Practitioner whether in the public or private sectors and is fully recognised and accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH).

The course explores the relationship between your work, home and leisure environments and how they impact on your health. You will be given the knowledge and skills to assess risk and apply solutions to protect and improve health and safety in a variety of settings. You will critically evaluate the legal and social framework within which environmental health operates, providing the skills to plan and manage change where change is needed.

The Masters focuses on occupational health and safety and food safety. The award meets the CIEH requirement to enable you to progress to a full professional Environmental Health Practitioner (EHP) both as a generalist and as a specialist in these areas. Students elect which route they want to take to achieve professional registration after graduation through their portfolio of professional practice and professional examinations.
