Entry guidelines

The Diploma syllabus assumes that the candidate will have the broad basic knowledge of health and safety that is provided by a level 3 qualification such as the NEBOSH General Certificate or equivalent. The standard of English required by the candidates studying for this award must be such that they can both understand and articulate the concepts contained in the syllabus. If English is not your first language you should be qualified to IELTS 7.0 or higher.

Assessment Method

Units A, B and C are each assessed by a three hour written examination, marked by external examiners appointed by NEBOSH. Unit DNI is a 10,000 word report on health and safety management in the workplace which is submitted to, and assessed by, NEBOSH.

Additional Information

The NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety qualification requires the completion of four core units: A, B, C and DNI. See separate leaflets for details. A certificate is issued on successful achievement of each unit. The Diploma award is issued on successful completion of all four units.

Where can I progress to?

The Diploma qualification meets the academic requirements to apply for Graduate Membership of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (Grad IOSH). This is the first step to becoming a Chartered Health and Safety Practitioner as a Chartered Member of IOSH (CMIOSH). It is also accepted by the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) as meeting the academic requirements for full membership (MIIRSM). The National Diploma provides a sound basis for progression to degree level qualifications. Several UK universities offer MSc programs that accept the National Diploma as a full or partial entry requirement.
