Entry requirements

Entry qualifications are normally either a degree in a business-related subject with a minimum of a good honours degree, or a CIPD Foundation or Advanced Certificate or Diploma with appropriate experience. Non-graduates who possess either a CIPD Foundation or Intermediate qualification or equivalent are encouraged to apply. Based on an assessment of your qualifications and professional experience, you will then be counselled as to the appropriate qualification route. Some applicants with a Foundation Certificate or Diploma (eg Certificate or Diploma in HR Practice or Certificate or Diploma in Learning and Development Practice) may have a sufficiently strong experiential profile to progress directly to the programme. Applicants will need to be working in an HR role or have access to the HR function within an organisation.
