DIPLOMA IN ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH
                (A11266 [01/2020])

            Environmental Health is a challenging field of research and policy that links the natural, health and social
            sciences with worlds of academia, business, labour, government and community groups. The
            relationships between human health and environment are, however, multidirectional with the human
            health and well being issues having consequences for the state of the environment. The Diploma
            Programme will provide skills and knowledge for understanding and professional practice in such an
            interconnected world.

ABOUT AMU

From our humble inception in 2004, Asia Metropolitan University has grown into a full-fledged university
offering a wide range of programmes which bears testimony to our impressive track record in the private,
higher education landscape in Malaysia.

In line with the recent developments in the industry and within our institution, AMU is focused in producing
trained, qualified, competent graduates for domestic and international markets in health sciences, business
and management. In the years to come, AMU aims to achieve the “top-of-the-mind choice” globally. Above all,
we envision our students to not only come from a diverse range of countries, but also as significant
contributors to the international human capital needs.

Currently, AMU provides an educational pathway from foundation studies and diploma programmes for
post-secondary school certificate holders as well as bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and doctoral degree
programmes. We have revolutionised our approach to ensure a high quality delivery of our academic
programmes. Many factors have precipitated our transformation as a private tertiary education institution. A
critical dimension of the repositioning is our incessant drive for academic delivery and quality. Besides striving
for continuous improvement, we have repositioned ourselves in the changing landscape of the higher
education industry to better address the intensified competition in the higher education industry.
