602.jpg Being at Salford gives you the opportunity to meet students from all over the world with diverse cultural backgrounds and new interesting ideas. Working with them allowed me to expand my knowledge and experience.

The best part of the course is the modules which cover the area of safety, health & environment in an interesting way, making study pleasant! In particular, most of them apply theory into practice, teaching me how to deal in a real situation. That part makes them extremely useful for my career.

I would definitely recommend this course - it gave me the opportunity to get the job that I was hoping for, right after my graduation (working at MDA Management Ltd where I am a health and safety coordinator.)
