AT A GLANCE
This Honours Top-up broadens students’ environmental health knowledge in areas including partnership working, auditing and practical problem solving while they continue to work towards their Portfolio of Professional Practice.
Working as an environmental health practitioner in either the public or private sector requires a broad skillset in order to advise, consult, manage, inspect and enforce in a range of areas relating to public health and the environment; ensuring people can live and work in safe and healthy settings. Starting salaries for environmental health practitioners (EHPs) typically start at £25,000 per year and senior EHPs and managers can expect to earn over £38,000 after working in the sector for 10 to 15 years.
This course provides professional progression for students who have completed a Foundation Degree accredited by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) and want to earn a full Honours Degree at Level 6. As well as taking another crucial step towards becoming a fully-qualified EHP, students who complete this course will also possess the enhanced planning, research and analytical skills required for postgraduate study in a range of subjects.
