Environmental health is the branch of public health that’s concerned with how our living, working and leisure environments affect our health. It’s a gripping subject to study and a fascinating field to work in. Whether you’re helping improve the living conditions of society’s poorest, or working with a company to improve health and safety for staff and customers, your work will have a huge, life-changing and often life-saving impact.

Why study MSc Environmental Health at Middlesex?

We are the largest and foremost provider of environmental health education in the UK. Our close links with industry allow us to offer a course which is highly work-focused, with a strong emphasis on practical laboratory work and real-life case studies. Our excellent facilities include a microbiology laboratory and pestology materials.

Many of our teaching staff are chartered environmental health practitioners, and they have a wide range of specialisms and experience. Our inspiring principal lecturer Alan Page is a former principal environmental health officer at several London councils, while programme leader Michael Hewitt was a senior environmental health officer at British Airways. Under their expert guidance, our students have done research into a wide variety of areas, including listeria in food, the effects of heavy smoking, skin lightening, water pollution and the attitudes of people living in high-rise buildings towards recycling.

Course highlights

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, meaning that when you graduate, you’ll be eligible to apply for professional membership of the institute, and sit the assessment to become a general or specialist (and eventually chartered) practitioner. You will be encouraged to become a student member while you study.
Specialist modules focus on food safety and health and safety, areas which are particularly valued by both local authorities and the private sector.
The course is centred on UK law and practice, but is designed to be flexible and provide education and training that will be valuable internationally.
