The NEBOSH Diploma is a highly recognised qualification, it is considered one route towards graduate IOSH membership and subsequently Chartered Member IOSH status (CMIOSH). A number of universities offer MSc programs that accept NEBOSH Diplomas as a full or partial entry requirement.

The Diploma is ideally undertaken by those working in the industry of health and safety, or with an understanding of health and safety. NEBOSH strongly recommends that students have attained the NEBOSH General Certificate, National Construction Certificate or equivalent before undertaking the NEBOSH Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety.

It is possible to complete the course without prior knowledge of health and safety. However this is not recommended as the NEBOSH Diploma is equivalent level to an honours degree. To find out more about your suitability for this course please get in touch with one of our advisors.



E-Learning is a great way to study in your own time, at your own pace, due to the flexibility of being able to access materials online as opposed to having to attend scheduled course dates. Learning online is dependent on your own motivation to work through the course, so if you have successfully completed self-directed study education previously, you are likely to get on well with E-Learning as a whole.

If you’re not sure that e-learning will be suitable for you, please contact one of our course advisors who can give you advice and guidance on the online course and our other methods of learning such as Classroom and Blended learning.
