The Masters of WHS (Occupational Hygiene Specialisation) program at UOW has been revised and launched in the Autumn session of 2015.  Enrolment is via the University enrolment process and timeframes.  Details are available at this link:   http://www.uow.edu.au/future/index.html

Further information is available via course finder on the UOW website:  http://socialsciences.uow.edu.au/has/UOW199135.html

UOW accreditation with AOHSEAB, AIOH and BOHS has been achieved and the IOSH accreditation application has been submitted.

We offer a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Masters in Work Health and Safety (WHS) within a fully nested program. The course structure and the subjects are detailed in Coursefinder.

The course has changed from the previous Masters (OHS) and Masters (Occupational Hygiene Practice) programs which were 48 credit point Masters degrees. The new program offers a Masters in WHS with specialisation in either Occupational Hygiene Practice, Ergonomics or Risk Management  and is a 72 credit point Masters degree.  The reason for the change is two-fold – new Australian OHS accreditation requirements and the need for all postgraduate courses in Australia to be AQF compliant – which entails a greater ‘volume of learning’ than the current practice.

Duration of the course will be: Graduate Certificate – 12 months part time; Graduate Diploma  – 12 months full time or part time equivalent; Masters Degree – 18 months full time or 3 years part time.

 

The entry requirements are as follows:

Masters:         Bachelors degree in a cognate area (1/3 of course science based) of at least 3 years duration from a
recognised tertiary institution or equivalent.

Grad Dip.:       Bachelors degree in a cognate area (1/3 of course science based) of at least 3 years duration from a recognised tertiary institution or equivalent.

Courses are taught in a ‘flipped classroom’ model with content and assessment online prior to attending a block teaching period (3 - 5 days) for each subject. Assessment will involve a range of activities including exams and assignments.
