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. We welcome international students on our courses.
This Public and Environmental Health Sciences programme from University of Birmingham is aimed at International students but is also open to UK students. If you are a UK student who wishes to work in the UK or pursue the CIEH Chartered route, please see the equivalent Environmental Health MSc programme.
The course is taught using formal lectures, workshops, group work, case studies, practical simulations, industrial/commercial visits and student centered learning. Students benefit from being taught in a research-intense environment and are encouraged to develop their critical thinking and research skills. The course supports building the foundation of competence through the knowledge and skills required by the CIEH curriculum.
