Hello everyone,

I am currently looking for a MSc in Health & Safety that is only provided via distance learning (I live in Greece).

I have found that there are some courses from Strathclyde University, Portsmouth University, Herriot Watt and Greenwich.

I have never done any MSc course before and I have no previous experience in distance learning courses.

Which is the best option? Portsmouth provides a course that is IOSH and IEMA accredited, however the university's global ranking is not so good as Strathclyde's University. Strathclyde though does not have any environmental management modules, therefore no IEMA accredited.

What are your thoughts? Which course and university should I choose to go with?

Is the global university ranking important or the modules are more important?

Thanks in advance

I'm studying at Greenwich

Year 1

Chemical Environment, Critical Thinking, Environmental Impact and Management

Management of Physical Agents, Safety and Risk Management, Research Methods

Year 2

Dissertation, Ergonomics and Workplace Psychology, The Reflective Practioner or Disaster Management and Recovery 

Really good university and the tutors dont make you feel like you are a distance learner. The course materials are in depth, they have a day each semester when you can meet them, you can skype with the tutors and email response I have had has been great. A lovely and supportive group of people there.

The mandatory modules are:

- Management essentials for Health and Safety - Risk management in Practice - Environmental Management

Plus one of the optional courses (Professional Development, Learning Management & Research, Construction Health & Safety)

- Work based learning master (Dissertation)

What are your thoughts about this MSc course?

I've just completed my GradIOSH and I'm now looking for 'what next'.  I am based in the Portsmouth area working in H&S for a civil engineering company so doing the MSc at Portsmouth would make sense.  Would anyone recommend this or what about me doing my IPD and going for my CMIOSH?  I'm still undecided.

Thanks - SSM
