Course summary

Course Overview

Throughout this Masters course you’ll study key concepts such as risk and sustainability. You’ll also gain the knowledge and skills to be able to make independent professional judgements and contribute effectively to organisational strategies.

The course is accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), which means that after completing the course you will meet the academic requirements for Graduate (Grad IOSH) membership.

For one semester, in your second year you will have an opportunity to undertake an Advanced Practice placement, study in another country or join a research group. This valuable experience will enhance your employability and further develop your theoretical and practical skills.

Accredited by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) for the purpose of eligibility to apply for associate membership.
Advanced Practice Placement

This option offers the opportunity to spend three months working full-time to gain all-important work experience and employability skills. You may be able to extend this over more than one semester in cases where it is adjacent to a vacation period. We will try to help those who prefer this option to source opportunities and to prepare their CV, but ultimately it is the student's responsibility to secure an Advanced Practice placement through a competitive application process.

Research

If you take this option, you will be assigned to our Geography and Environmental Studies Research Group. There is every possibility that you may contribute to published research and therefore you may be named as part of the research team, which would be a great start to a research career.

Study Abroad

We have exchange agreements with universities all over the world, including partners in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Oceania. If you take the Study Abroad option you will spend a semester at one of these partners, continuing your studies in English but in a new cultural and learning environment. Please note that this option may require you to obtain a visa for study in the other country.

Your Future

By the end of this course you’ll be in an excellent position to start or continue a career in safety, health and environmental management.

Roles could include ensuring compliance with relevant legislation, minimising risks of injuries and ill health in the workplace, and developing, implementing and monitoring environmental strategies that promote sustainable development.

You could also undertake a postgraduate research degree such as an MPhil, PhD and Professional Doctorate. If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
