Course taster

Welcome from the Academic Lead

Welcome to this course taster! This taster is an example of what is studied on our online Environmental Health MSc course so that you can see the types of material we use for our courses. At the University of Derby we believe in providing you with high quality learning material that enables you to develop new digital skills, improve your practice and apply your new learning in innovative ways. This course taster is taken from a unit on the Pollution Assessment and Remediation module and is very indicative of the type of content you'll find across the online environmental courses and pathways.

We use advanced bespoke tools and technologies to provide you with deep learning. We’ve developed our learning material with academics from across the globe who are experts in their fields, many of which are or have been educators at pre- and post-16 education. Many have extensive publication records and have written books on their subjects.

I hope you enjoy studying this course taster, and look forward to welcoming you onto one of our courses soon.
