Course overview

Evidence shows that work performance is improved if employees have a positive physical and mental wellbeing. Many organisations have therefore realised that they should take a proactive approach to wellness, rather than focusing on illness and absence management. This has created a need for highly skilled health, safety and wellbeing managers.

A key component of this course is a major piece of independent work, where you will focus on a specific area of interest and develop an in-depth project.

You will study health and safety regulation and legislation, communication, management tools, risk assessment, control and mitigation for a range of workplace hazards typical in most industries and organisations. You will also examine related issues such as the impact of societal factors on health in the workplace, and the wider public health agenda.

Health, Safety and Wellbeing MSc is a new course at the University of Sunderland, and is accredited with The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). As a student on this course, you will be able to join IOSH as a student member and attend IOSH seminars offered by the North East regional group.

We strongly encourage you to take a placement as part of your degree, so that you can apply and develop your learning in a real work context. A placement enables you to augment your experience of work, and also build up a professional network. When you graduate you will have the knowledge, skills and confidence to take on roles in health, safety and wellbeing in a wide range of public, private and regulatory organisations.
