Course content

This dedicated course is your opportunity to become a human resource management (HRM) professional with sought-after expertise. You will understand how to support effectively an organisation’s growth, vision and values by skilfully identifying and managing workforce development needs.

If you choose the PG Dip Learning & Development course, you will study part-time. You will be required to attend three two-day skills workshops. On completion of the postgraduate diploma, you could go on to top-up your qualification to a full masters with the MA Learning & Development by completing a dissertation.

If you choose the masters option, you can study full-time or part-time and you will tailor your modules to your career aspirations, researching and writing your dissertation in an area of interest to specialise your expertise.

On both routes, you will learn through lectures, seminars, workshops and discussion groups, learning from the wide-ranging industry experience your peers and tutors bring to the table.
