Environmental health degree

To become an environmental health professional registered with the EHRB, you normally need to complete one of the degrees we accredit. There are a number of universities offering accredited environmental health degrees in the UK and abroad, including undergraduate and postgraduate courses on a full-time or part-time basis.

For school or college leavers, entry requirements vary from university to university. Alternatively, entry can be gained through an appropriate GNVQ, BTEC or Foundation degree qualification.

For non-traditional applicants, there are flexible routes into the BSc degree, including a one-year science access or Foundation degree. People who already have a BSc in another field may be able to gain entry to an accredited postgraduate MSc course.
