IT and computing programmes at the University of Derby are designed to enable you to develop your skills or build on your knowledge and experience to gain a degree or Masters level qualification. Our programmes are made up or stimulating and inspiring modules, and delivered in a structured and supportive environment with high standards of tuitions and support.
If you are seeking to develop your career in environmental health, gain a Masters degree by online learning
Our MSc Environmental Health is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) and the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS) to give you the professional recognition that you require to get ahead in your career.
As one of the UK’s leading providers of online distance learning, our online degree courses are a popular choice for busy professionals who are seeking career progression or perhaps looking for a change in direction.
You’ll find detailed information on individual course pages but, as a guide, you will need to allocate approximately 200 hours per standard module (20 credits) for learning, which equates to around 17-20 hours per week. This will be a combination of tutor discussions, reading, research, online activities and critical thinking and reflection.
Depending on which course you are studying, you can start at any of our three intakes in September, January and May. So you’ll have more options than traditional ‘on-campus’ courses, but you can’t start your course at any other times. Our trimester based learning ensures that tutors are available throughout your course and that there will be other students on your modules at the same time to share and enhance your student experience.
In some respects, it can be more difficult: you will need to be self-motivated, organised and dedicated to completing your studies. However, you will have the flexibility to study at times which suit you and you won’t need to travel to campus or attend lectures at fixed times which might make it easier to fit studying for a degree with your busy work and family life.
