Course content

The MSc Human Resource Management/Development programme is intended for those with little or no work experience since graduation. Depending upon your option module choices and dissertation topic you may graduate with either an MSc in Human Resource Management (HRM) or an MSc in Human Resource Development (HRD).

UCLan is an Accredited Centre for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), which means that it is empowered to award its own internally assessed MSc course which gives full exemption from the CIPD’s professional education route to membership. Thus, students who successfully complete the course will receive UCLan’s MSc in HRM or HRD and will also have fulfilled the CIPD’s skills and knowledge requirements for membership.

On completion of your studies, you can continue your membership of CIPD and eventually gain chartered membership. You will be required to complete a behavioural assessment and provide evidence that you have gained the necessary work experience in HRM/D. The course leader can advise you further on the route to and benefits of CIPD membership.
