This programme is designed for international students wishing to advance their knowledge in public health and environmental health. It provides opportunities to understand how to manage risks posed to public and environmental health and provide the necessary solutions. A virtual learning platform has been introduced to allow students to identify hazards and risks within an industrial environment. The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health for international students. It is taught in conjunction with the MSc in Environmental Health.
This programme is aimed at International students. If you are a UK/EU student, please see the equivalent Environmental Health MSc programme.
The Division of Environmental Health and Risk Management (DEHRM) is based in the well-equipped, purpose-built facilities of the University's Public Health Building. The course is taught using formal lectures; workshops; group work; case studies; practical simulations; industrial/commercial visits; and student centered learning. In 2012, a virtual learning platform will be introduced to allow the students to identify hazards and risks within an industrial environment. It will provide students with a hands-on opportunity for problem-solving and supports building the foundation of competence through the knowledge and skills required by the CIEH .
This programme provides an accredited pathway for science-based graduates to become environmental health practitioners. It is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), and covers the following modules:
• Environmental Protection and Climate Change
• Occupational Health and Safety
• Food Science and Control
• Chemical and Biological Incident Management
• Health Protection
• Research Methods
Our research attracts extensive funding from many sources, including the:
Department of Transport
Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
Department of Health
Food Standards Agency
National Environment Research Council (NERC)
Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)
The collaborative nature of much of this work, together with the mix of pure, strategic and applied research, often involving interdisciplinary teams spanning physical, biological, chemical, medical and social sciences, provides a dynamic and internationally recognised research environment.
