The level 7 Certificate of Credit in Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), is a 20 credit module providing a sound appreciation of the importance of conducting EIA, together with an understanding of the techniques by which this can be achieved. The module, which takes a comparative international outlook and covers changes in EIA regulation and guidelines, also considers the environmental assessment of plans and programmes by strategic environmental assessment (SEA).

This module is suitable for intending and existing environmental management professionals seeking to increase or refresh their knowledge and understanding of the EIA process. Whilst this module is an opportunity to enhance your CPD and add to your professional portfolio, it is also an excellent opportunity to experience our IEMA accredited Sustainability and Environmental Management MSc before making a commitment to study the full programme.

By completing this module you will gain a critical understanding of international environmental assessment practice and its potential for delivering sustainable development.

The module is delivered 100% online over 10 weeks using a range of interactive learning materials and some live classroom sessions. Provision is made for discussion and interaction with tutors and fellow students through live virtual classroom sessions and online discussion forums.
