Got a question for us?
What are our students saying?
I was attracted to continue my study at CUCMS’s because of the university‘s excellent reputation for OSH programs. At CUCMS, the learning process is fun and challenging at here. All lecturers are willingly to share their experiences and expertise with me. This environment encourages me to think independently and creatively in OSH field
The facilities and general atmosphere surpasses that of any other University I had visited and I knew from that moment that CUCMS was the place I wanted to study for my OSH degree.”
I have really enjoyed the broad range of modules within my OSH degree, enabling me to gain an insight into the different areas of Occupational Safety and Health and experience its diverse and applicable nature. The interactive and practical element of the lectures have been stimulating and inspiring, and help developed my communication and critical thinking skills whilst increasing my knowledge and understanding of the OSH field.
