These MSc/MRes programmes in Environmental Management (in partnership with NEBOSH) at The University of Hull will help students identify and resolve real issues relating to them in their day-to-day roles - enhanced by the final dissertation, which is written on a research project from their own work.

About

The MSc/MRes programmes in Environmental Management (in partnership with NEBOSH) at The University of Hull are the only courses of their kind created with and endorsed by NEBOSH at Masters-level, and offer those already working in industry and holding a NEBOSH diploma or BSc the chance to enhance their skills and techniques. 

The programmes are completely employer focused, using current employment to evidence achievement, and are studied part-time using e-learning modules to enable study anywhere in the UK - or overseas. 

There are three specific pathways that can be chosen; Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Management, Occupational Health and Safety Management, or Environmental Management. Each pathway can be studied either as a taught-focused MSc or more research-focused MRes making it easier to tailor the course to individual needs and study-styles.

What you'll study

For MSc students the taught modules are taken in the first year and the first semester of the second year, using the University’s e-learning environment. You also supplement learning with your own background reading. Once these have been completed, the last six months of the course consist of the research dissertation.

Future prospects

The programmes are completely employer-focused, using current employment as a research base in which to evidence the skills and experience obtained. Completing one of these courses will enable you to advise on and develop systems to improve health, safety and environmental performance of organisations at a strategic level.

Due to the consistent recognition for providing NEBOSH courses to a high standard, the University and our graduates have an excellent reputation with professionals in the Humber and Yorkshire area.
