As a qualified HR professional and already holding a postgraduate diploma in Human Resource Management, you will learn how to undertake research in HRM and write a dissertation that can persuade key stakeholders to change or adopt a particular policy and practice.

You will investigate a real HR issue that has relevance to your organisation and demonstrates that your methodologies are valid and robust, and will add value to your organisation.

You will graduate with a deeper knowledge and understanding of your chosen research topic as well as solid research and communication skills preparing you for a range of senior professional HR positions.

Why choose this course?

  • Develop valuable research and communication skills building on the knowledge gained during your postgraduate diploma studies and your career to date.
  • Study relevant research philosophies and methodologies in semester 1 in order to investigate a HR issue in semester two, that has relevance to your organisation and demonstrates that your methodologies are valid and robust, and will add value to your organisation.
  • Learn from tutors who have close relationships with the CIPD, expertise gained from industry experience, together with strong research in key areas of HRM including diversity management, international HRM and talent and reward management.
  • Collaborate with other HR practitioners from a wide range of local, national and international organisations and attend networking events provided by the local CIPD branch.
  • Explore and exploit HR metrics and analytics for competitive advantage, allowing you to demonstrate strategic expertise and critical awareness of HRM issues and solutions from a collaborative and business perspective.
  • Benefit from a part-time course that fits around your work and home commitments and prepares you for a range of senior strategic and expert HR roles, such as director and consultant.

How will I be assessed?
