Although much of the details of waste management regulations and pratice are based on the requirements of the industry in the UK, the principles have a much wider application, and hence the programme is also designed to appeal to those intending to practice overseas. The applied nature of the subject is recognised and a variety of practical aspects are included in the modules.

There is considerable demand for waste managers and waste minimisation practitioners both in Europe and further afield.
