Hi @D_POPSA

Congratulations on reciving offers from both us and Salford! Hopefully, someone from Salford will be able to find your thread and give you some information on their university and course. HOwever, i thought it might be helpful if i give you a bit more information on Manchester Met.

As i don't study the course, i cannot comment on course specifics but i will try my best to go over what you have mentioned in your initial thread!

Our course is accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. Some of the features and benefits of our course are:


Industrial site visits - You’ll go on visits to specific areas of safety, health and environmental (SHE) and health and wellbeing settings.

Practical sessions - You’ll have sessions to help you develop the skills to identify, evidence and analyse concerns for human health.

Professional development - Once enrolled on the course, you’ll be eligible to apply for student member status of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) for the duration of your studies. When you graduate, you’ll be entitled to register for IOSH graduate member status.

Networking events - We host and participate in safety, health and wellbeing industry networking events. Previous events have featured a workshop on creative ideas and stories to address workplace wellbeing and mental health, with guest speakers from Anker and Marsh.

Hi @D_POPSA,

Sorry to be coming to this thread a little late, but massive congratulations to your wife on getting offers for both us and MMU that’s great news!

I can see that Carly has given you some great information on the course at MMU, so thought I’d do the same for you for Salford 😊 In terms of the course itself, some of the key benefits are…

Professional accreditation: the course is accredited by both the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) and meets the academic requirements for graduate membership;
Fast track: Graduates of the course can fast track to PIEMA (practitioner status) once they’ve completed a work-based assessment;
Practical: the course modules are industry-focused, with teaching being delivered through lectures, tutorials, case studies and simulated business projects. Your wife will also have the opportunity to take part in field work and site visits!
Specialist speakers: we have visiting practitioners from industry and regularly invite honorary visiting professors and external experts to talk to our students.

I hope this helps! You can find out a bit more about the course including information about module breakdown here: https://www.salford.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/safety-health-environment

You also mentioned things like location, cost and environment in your post, so I’ve added a bit more information below too:

Environment/location: We’re a friendly and diverse campus-based University, located around 20 minutes’ walk away from Manchester city centre (we also have a railway station on our campus and it’s just 5 minutes by train);
On-site accommodation cost: We have on-campus accommodation that varies in cost it starts from around £105 a week but depends on what you opt for. You can take a look around the accommodation online too - https://vimeo.com/312984336
Private accommodation cost: For both Universities you mentioned, your wife could also look at private accommodation. If she chooses to do this, we’d recommend you use Manchester Student Homes as the landlords are accredited - https://www.manchesterstudenthomes.com/

If you’d like to get the perspective of current students on both programmes, you might also like to look at Unibuddy: https://www.ucas.com/chat-to-students You can filter by University and subject, to find people on the courses at the Universities you’re looking at, and have a chat to them about how they find it!

Really hope this helps good luck to your wife on making her decision 😊
