Entry requirements

For the MA Human Resource Management we normally require a second class honours degree or above, or an overseas equivalent qualification. Your first degree doesn't have to be 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.
