Course Summary

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, and 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 - enhanced by the final dissertation, which is written on a research project from their own work.

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 as 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 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.

Future prospects

The programmes are completely employer-focused, using current employment as a research base in which to evidence the skills and experience obtained. Completing one of these courses will enable you to advise on and develop systems to improve health, safety and environmental performance of organisations at a strategic level.

Due to our consistent recognition for providing NEBOSH courses to a high standard, the University and our graduates have an excellent reputation with professionals and employers in the Humber and Yorkshire area.

Modules
