What will you study?

Year 1 focuses on developing your knowledge with an emphasis on key skills in risk assessment and legal interpretation together with core sciences to underpin your scientific knowledge. After successfully completing Year 1 you will be awarded the Certificate in Environmental Health and, if you wish, you can leave the course at this point.

Year 2 is focused on developing practical competences and in the final year you will look closely at concepts of health promotion and education to improve health.
