Summary

**Overview**

Do you want to boost your career prospects by studying for an occupational health, safety and environmental management Master's degree alongside your current job?

Whether you want to progress your career as an Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Practitioner or specialise in managing HSE in fields such as construction, nuclear or oil and gas, this MSc Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Management through the Learning at Work Masters course gives you the skills, knowledge and confidence to fulfil your ambitions.

Because the course is work-based, you need to already be in a full-time, part-time or voluntary role. If you don't have an undergraduate degree, you could still do this postgraduate course if you have several years experience in a responsible position or you have high-level skills through experience that isn't reflected in your qualifications.

You can tailor the course to match your professional and personal aspirations and your employer's objectives. The way you learn is flexible, so you can study wherever is most convenient for you and schedule your studies around your existing commitments.

You'll get to put the skills you learn to work instantly in your job, contributing to the success of your company. When you complete the course, you'll improve your career prospects and have the skills and knowledge to perform more effectively in your job.

The course is accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) – so once you've successfully completed it, you can make an application to IOSH for Graduate membership. You'll also be able to work towards their Chartered status with IOSH through our professional development process.

**What you'll experience**

On this course, you'll:

- Choose modules and topics that match your personal and professional goals, as well as your employer's objectives

- Develop your ability to analyse problems, research and propose solutions, and make sound professional judgements when faced with the organisational, financial and management aspects of a business

- Take part in work-based learning (WBL) projects that form part of your daily workload, which ensure that the knowledge you develop is relevant to your employer's business

- Get an optional 1-day induction in Portsmouth at the start of the course and have the opportunity to study on campus, if it suits you

- Develop your learning plan with the University and your employer, so you can make an effective contribution to your workplace as you learn

- Have full access to our student support services and community including study support, sports and recreation facilities, and the Students' Union

- Tap in to our Library's electronic resources, which you can access from anywhere with a Web connection

- Choose a Workplace Partner to support your learning – someone at work who can offer advice, guidance, and moral support

- Have support from an academic tutor specialising in your area of study and a University learning manager who oversees your programme

- Use online tutorials and lectures to help you with study skills, including your analytical and writing skills

**Course duration**

This course isn't tied to the University's timetables or academic calendar. So you can work at your own pace, in your own time and in your own location. You must complete the course within 5 years.

You can complete the course more quickly if you have relevant work experience, training or qualifications that you can put towards your degree. This is known as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). You can use RPL for up to 120 of the 180 credits you need to accumulate to get your Master's degree.

We recommend you study modules worth 60 credits a year. Typically, a student who enters with the maximum RPL of 120 credits and has only 60 credits to study would take 12-18 months to complete the course.
