This popular and well-established programme was the first online ergonomics masters course to be launched in Europe.

Accredited by your professional body, the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (IEHF), it meets their high standards and gives you the opportunity of Graduate Membership which is your first step to registered status as an Ergonomist.
Flexible enough to fit around you
Depending on whether you’re currently employed and on how much time you have, you can choose to complete this masters in 3-6 years part time. It’s really down to you to set the pace and because it’s online, you have complete control over when and where you study. Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures.
The MSc Ergonomics comprises three progressive stages; Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and MSc:
•Postgraduate Certificate in Ergonomics you must complete 3 modules (60 credits) •Postgraduate Diploma in Ergonomics you must complete a total of 6 modules (120 credits) •MSc you must complete 6 modules and the Independent Study project (180 credits).
We would encourage you to complete the full MSc, but if you aren't able to, you can still gain an exit award at each stage: a PG Cert or a PG Dip.
You can start this course in September and May.
