Toxicology and Risk Assessment MSc

Course Description

Toxicology and Risk Assessment Masters course caters for the current global need for toxicologists and ecotoxicologists who are competent in conducting hazard and risk evaluation of chemical substances.

The course is designed to train students for a career as registered toxicologists. It is suitable for graduates interested in obtaining a qualification in human and environmental health as well as students already in full time employment working for industry, contract laboratories or government agencies, who require either formal qualifications or intend to revalidate their qualifications in toxicology. This will contribute to their continuing professional development (CPD) and towards the requirements for the UK Register of Toxicologists.

We also offer some of the MSc modules as stand alone CPD courses.

The course aims at providing students with an advanced, multi-disciplinary and current understanding of the effects of chemicals on human and environmental health and the consequent impact on chemical risk assessment and regulation. The course has been specifically designed to equip students with the skills to critically evaluate and understand chemical hazards, as well as making informed decisions in terms of potential health risks for both humans and wildlife.
