Overview


Study environmental science, health science and public health legislation in areas such as food control, housing, health and safety management and pollution to begin a varied and rewarding career in the sector.

You will also enhance your knowledge in preferred areas of professional practice and, be encouraged to undertake activities such as environmental assessments and audits. In recent years, students have undertaken fieldwork at food manufacturers, power plants, music festivals and quarries.

Course detail

The course is taught in the new and fully-equipped science laboratories on the sixth floor of our Knightstone building in the centre of Weston. Some sessions are also taught on-line and few minutes’ walk away in our new University Centre in the Winter Gardens on Weston seafront, which is a modern and bright study area with computer suites and a dedicated higher education library.

The course is taught by lecturers who have been EHPs in a number of areas themselves, and our great links with the CIEH are demonstrated by our lecturers, students and graduates winning the CIEH Team of the Year Award in 2019.

You’ll undertake academic and practical studies of the scientific principles that govern biological, physical, chemical, sociological and psychological stressors in a public and environmental health context.

The classroom-based aspects of the course also cover the primary standards, guidelines and legislation relating to environmental health, and professional engagement with risk and hazard assessments.

This degree course also offers plenty of opportunities for practical trips and fieldwork, with UCW Public and Environmental Health students in recent years having visited specialist sites such as food manufacturers and power plants and undertaken health and safety audits at Jaguar Land Rover, Thatcher’s Cider and at music festivals.

We even offer scholarships to support students to undertake work experience for the Environment Agency in Gibraltar. Indeed, one of our graduates recently accepted a full-time role with the agency as an Environmental Health Officer.
