Course content

This exciting, innovative and flexible part-time course, accredited by CIPD, offers a route to personal and career development for HR practitioners or those aspiring to become an HR practitioner. Taught on one afternoon and one evening a week, students can exit with a Postgraduate Diploma after two years or achieve an MSc qualification in three years.

Initially, MSc students take a number of compulsory modules to provide the foundations for an understanding of management. There is then the opportunity to choose from a range of specialist modules before embarking on a dissertation looking at a specific HR-related topic.

The course is flexible in that you can decide at the end of the first year whether you wish to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma after two years or continue on into your third year by completing your dissertation and achieving an MSc.
