Description

Do you want to boost your career prospects by studying for an occupational health, safety and environmental management Master’s degree alongside your current job?

Whether you want to progress your career as an Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Practitioner or specialise in managing HSE in fields such as construction, nuclear or oil and gas, this MSc Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Management through the Learning at Work Masters course gives you the skills, knowledge and confidence to fulfil your ambitions.

Because the course is work-based, you need to already be in a full-time, part-time or voluntary role. If you don’t have an undergraduate degree, you could still do this postgraduate course if you have several years experience in a responsible position or you have high-level skills through experience that isn’t reflected in your qualifications.

You can tailor the course to match your professional and personal aspirations and your employer’s objectives. The way you learn is flexible, so you can study wherever is most convenient for you and schedule your studies around your existing commitments.

You’ll get to put the skills you learn to work instantly in your job, contributing to the success of your company. When you complete the course, you’ll improve your career prospects and have the skills and knowledge to perform more effectively in your job.

The course is accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) – so once you’ve successfully completed it, you can make an application to IOSH for Graduate membership. You’ll also be able to work towards their Chartered status with IOSH through our professional development process.

This course is flexible allowing you to complete the course over a flexible duration, for example 2 to 5 years (actual duration is discussed and agreed in the first 12 weeks of your course). This allows you more time to fit your studies around your work commitments.
