NEBOSH Diploma: What’s next for diploma-holders?

If you have achieved a NEBOSH Diploma and want to continue your studies, a Masters Degree could offer the challenge you are looking for.

The University of Hull, in partnership with NEBOSH, now offers MSc and MRes Masters Degrees by distance-learning in Occupational Health, Safety, and Environmental Management subjects.
These qualifications are open to holders of a NEBOSH Diploma who wish to further their learning in Health and Safety and/or Environmental Management.

NEBOSH Development Manager, Barry Wilkes, who worked with the University of Hull to develop the new distance-learning courses, explained: “Students can choose to focus solely on health and safety or environmental management; with the additional option to study both disciplines within their Masters programme. These new degrees are designed to be flexible, and will benefit those people in full-time work who wish to complement their NEBOSH Diploma studies.”

Delivered through distance-learning, these new qualifications are ideal for both UK-based and international candidates wishing to gain a Masters-level qualification to enhance their career development.

The MSc programmes include taught modules on aspects of research methodology and designing a research project, as well as advanced modules on topics relating to health, safety, and environmental management. They conclude with a six-month research dissertation that is relevant to candidates’ own employment.

The MRes programmes are Masters-level research degrees that incorporate modules on research methodology, literature review, and design of research projects. These lead on to a one-year research project, during which students are able to produce a thesis on a topic that is relevant to their work.
