- We normally require a second class honours degree or above, not necessarily in business.
- Applicants without a degree who have practical experience in personnel work will also be considered, but you will need to demonstrate your ability on the basis on courses already attended, references supplied, a 2,000-word essay and an interview.
- Part time students should be currently employed or have past experience in posts with significant personnel-related responsibilities.

The increasing diversity of the workforce means traditional approaches to HR, people and change management need to be reassessed. All types of organisations, from the private to public sector increasingly require specialists able to consult on and lead change and manage diversity in this dynamic and exciting field.
