Overview

This dual-award programme is fully accredited by Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), giving full exemption against their Level 7 Advanced Diploma in HRM.

It will prepare you for a senior leadership position in HR, giving you the tools you need to distinguish yourself from the competition and the expertise needed to shape the HR agenda in any sector.

You’ll gain insights into the activities, functions and environment of an organisation, and how HR functions can make a key contribution to its success.

The programme will give you a comprehensive grounding in the core disciplines of HR practice, including:

  • leading
  • developing and managing people
  • employee relations
  • employment law

On successful completion you will automatically gain associate level of CIPD professional membership which will entitle you to use ‘Associate CIPD’ after your name. This will demonstrate your professional credibility to future employers in an increasingly competitive global graduate labour market. All students are required to join the CIPD as a student member within one month of commencing the course, and for successful graduates the CIPD joining fee and first-year membership fee are paid by the University as an additional benefit for our students.

As a member of the CIPD you will have the ability to attend local events, opportunities to network with senior professionals and executives, access various training and development e programme can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis. Students with a PG Diploma in a Human Resources discipline from another approved institution can top-up to Master's level by undertaking the Dissertation module on a part-time basis; CIPD professional membership is not available on this award.

You’ll apply your knowledge practically through case studies, project work and guest lectures, and debate the current challenges and dynamics affecting HR policy in an increasingly dynamic business and social environment.

There is a particular focus on ethical people management and social sustainability.

Assessment methods include exams, assessed essays, presentations, learning logs and an end of programme dissertation. The dissertation is a piece of research conducted in a business of your choice.
