Months of entry
If you have a postgraduate diploma (Level 7, 120 credits), our MA Human Resource Management allows you to top up your qualification to a full MA. The course is ideal if you are aiming for a strategic or senior management role and want to build an all-round, high level performance profile.
You can study on-campus (UK students only) or online from wherever you are, giving you the flexibility of learning in your own time. You can decide when and where to study to fit the degree in with your work and home commitments. And you'll enjoy a high level of personal support and online learning resources.
Our teaching staff are both researchers and experienced HR practitioners. They are passionate about their subjects and will support you throughout your studies.
We keep in touch with our graduates, their employers, and local CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) branch activities. This puts you in touch with great people from across the profession. And once a year we invite all these groups to come together at our Annual Postgraduate HR Research Conference.
