“The practical workplace application dimension of this programme is, in my opinion, a real strength and one that, speaking with my practitioner hat on, should not be underestimated or undersold. I had not fully appreciated how applicable to the ‘day job’ the programme would be when I signed up to it – so thank you and good luck with all future cohorts.”

“I was looking for a course that would help me develop my professional skills and knowledge further in particular with regard to understanding the relationship between work and health. I needed this in order to work better with HR and managers in improving people’s health at work. I stumbled on the course during an internet search of courses and universities. When looking at the modules offered, I was thrilled. It seemed a perfect fit. And it was.
As over the past two years the course helped me develop professionally and surpassed my expectations in many ways. I have learnt many valuable skills which are useful in occupational health. All six taught modules are relevant in my role as an occupational health practitioner and they all contribute to a much greater understanding of the relationship between work and health. They would do well to be included in any academic development of occupational health professionals in my view.
As a mature student I was always under pressure (even before commencing the course!) due to family and work commitments. But the people directing and convening the course are to be commended for excellence in all aspects of delivering the course. They made undergoing the course the best experience I have ever had in learning. From the way the course is delivered, to the standard of teaching, the IT, and the support offered to each student, they were excellent. All their efforts to help me did in fact contribute immensely to my success. I can never thank them enough.”
"Studying for the MSc in Workplace Health and Wellbeing not only enabled me to learn about cutting- edge research in the field of employee health, but significantly progressed my career. Within three months of beginning the MSc, I was offered a new job with a corporate wellbeing provider (whom I stayed with for two years), as the qualification was so well respected. The course offers fantastic networking opportunities in the field of wellbeing--it was through this network that I was approached to apply for my current job as Group Head of Health and Wellbeing at Royal Mail. The MSc is the best career move I have made!"
