Course Description

This flexible distance learning course is designed to meet the needs of practitioners within the environmental sector who wish
to achieve an MSc. You will study specially written distance learning materials supported by tutors with real world practical experience.

The modular approach allows you to progress at a pace to suit you, within defined boundaries. You collect credits for work completed giving the flexibility to stop and start as work and home life dictate.

This course focuses on UK and European legislation and techniques suitable for a temperate climate.

Course modules:

The course is designed to attract people from diverse backgrounds including mature learners who have been out of education for some time and those who have recently graduated.

Two modules from six are completed for the PG Cert and four for the PG Dip. The final MSc year involves a dissertation.
•Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC)
•Environmental Management Systems (EMS)
•Health and Safety

Teaching and Assessment:

You are encouraged to attend an induction session at the start of the course – this allows you to meet key members of academic
and administrative staff and familiarise yourself with studying by distance learning.

The course operates on a rolling, modular basis and you join when a new module begins. The majority of the course is delivered via distance learning. Each module is based on a 15 week timetable, although you can extend the study block to allow flexibility within a fixed framework. There are optional day tutorials for the Air, Water, Waste and IPPC Modules.

The Certificate/Diploma includes continuous assessment through the completion of post-tests and assignments at the end of each module. The MSc is assessed via a 20,000 word dissertation.


The course is managed by the Postgraduate and Continued Professional Development (CPD) Office, a specialist department
with over 15 years’ experience of supporting distance learning students.

Practitioners are employed as tutors for the various modules, ensuring that you receive a blend of theory and practical real world experience.

Graduate Careers:

You will increase your employability in the sector by studying for a recognised qualification which has been developed and structured to meet the needs of a changing and demanding environmental field.

Due to the flexibility and variety of this course, practitioners are attracted from industry and regulatory authorities. Graduates
typically hold roles such as environmental manager, strategic environmental planning officer, environmental protection officer,
waste management consultant, production services engineer, waste management officer, pollution control technician, senior
environment officer, air quality consultant, and many more.
