Course summary

Course Overview

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree. Where the Foundation Year is taught at our Aylesbury Campus all subsequent years will be taught at our High Wycombe Campus.

Human Resource Management is all about ensuring that people are managed and treated fairly. By recruiting, retaining, and developing the talent in a business, you can keep ahead of the competition. To ensure future success, companies are constantly on the lookout for skilled and qualified HR advisers and managers. Employers want graduates who are not just academically qualified, but are also work-ready with professional skills in management and leadership. This course will help meet this need and equip you with the skills to become a confident and successful HR manager.

Practical learning

The course focuses on the ability to think critically and will enable you to develop and evaluate solutions to complex, real-life problems. We focus on equipping you with the knowledge of contemporary management theories, but of equal importance, the opportunity to apply and integrate that knowledge in live projects. The programme’s practical aspects are intrinsically linked to the study of new and emerging theories in Human Resources and general business, both in the UK and internationally. We use live project examples wherever possible so that you can apply your learning and see how it all fits within the business world. Guest lecturers will be used throughout the programme to also demonstrate the relevance of the teaching in a business context.

Our students are often asked to develop solutions for a wide-range of businesses. This allows you to gain real-world, hands-on experience while businesses benefit from having dedicated consultants to carry out research and offer advice tailored to their needs. We’ve had students consulting major companies as well as helping start-ups to get their businesses on the move.

More placements, more choices

Bucks is a Placements Plus university. So, whatever degree you do, you can be sure there’ll be plenty of industry-relevant opportunities on offer, to help you get into your chosen field. We’ll also prepare you for work beforehand, with special skills for work training, further boosting your CV, and building skills employers will value. In recognition of the value we place on these skills we have incorporated this experience into your study time. Placements Plus is all about helping you get some valuable experience under your belt while you’re a student. To increase your choices later, and help you get the graduate-level job you want.

What are my career prospects

On successful completion of this degree, you will be able to pursue a range of opportunities and careers in HR and general management, or to develop your own businesses.
