Course summary


Whether you currently work in human resources (HR) or are looking to move into the profession, this course will provide you with an excellent foundation in HR knowledge and skills.

You’ll cover a range of themes around the field, using real cases to understand the impact that effective HR Management can make – including an HR issue from your own organisation. It’s a course that goes beyond classroom principles, giving real-world learning that’s relevant to your organisation and valuable to your career.

Adding value

While developing your own skills is important, this course also focuses on how HR can add value to organisations.

You’ll look at real examples of positive HRM. Your lecturers have extensive experience of working in HR, and many are active researchers in this field. They’ll bring this expertise into your sessions and share examples from their own careers.

Flexible study

This is a part-time course that’s designed to fit in around your existing commitments.

We’ll encourage you to use the assignments as an opportunity to tackle HR issues that your employer is facing. This is an excellent way to put your studies into the context of a real business.


This is a professional course with a practical focus. It’s designed to give you a stepping stone into more senior roles within HR, or to open a door into the profession if you’re working in another field. Even if you run your own business, the principles you’ll learn can make a lasting impact on performance and growth.

The professional skills and in-depth understanding you’ll gain with us can help prepare you for progress with your current employer. Alternatively, if you’re looking to move into a new business, having both a university qualification and your CIPD Intermediate Certificate in HRM will help you stand out in a competitive jobs market.
