Course summary

Why study this course?

When you successfully complete our postgraduate diploma in Human Resource Management, you’ll receive a CIPD Advanced Level 7 Associate Membership Certificate. This allows you to become an Associate member and progress this to Chartered membership or Chartered Fellowship, depending on your professional experience. You'll be able to put CMCIPD or CFCIPD after your name, signalling to employers your ability to work in more demanding and strategic roles. This will be particularly appealing if you want to pursue senior human resources (HR) roles.

In the most recent Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 95% of all 2017 graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months.

More about this course

On completion of the course, you’ll be well placed to take advantage of the many human resource management (HRM) career opportunities London has to offer.

This course is offered on a flexible basis to help you study around work or other responsibilities. It can be studied full-time in 12 months or part-time (two evenings per week) over 18 months. January and September start dates are available.

We’ll introduce you to theories around HR strategy and practice, covering issues relating to employee engagement, talent management and employment law – not only for entrepreneurial start-ups but for large multinational companies too.

You’ll develop your analytical and critical thinking skills so you can put these theories into practice and solve real life HR issues in your workplace. The course will also improve your research skills so you can put together a scientific research report that examines HR issues facing your organisation, and offer valuable suggestions on how to tackle them.

The CIPD requirements largely affect the structure of the course. The CIPD’s skills requirements (Skills for Business Leadership) are delivered and assessed across all four of the core modules. You’ll also be able to choose two option modules, which allow you to develop specialist knowledge in your area of interest.

Professional accreditation

You will need to join the CIPD when you begin your course. Upon successful completion of the course, you’ll gain Associate Membership of the CIPD.

Depending on your professional experience, you’ll also be able to apply for professional upgrading to achieve Chartered Membership or Fellowship. Our dedicated CIPD professional adviser will be available to guide you on your application to upgrade to Chartered status.

Upgrading to Chartered Membership or Chartered Fellowship of the CIPD enables you to use the designatory letters CMCIPD or CFCIPD, further enhancing your employability.

Where this course can take you

Completing the Human Resource Management PG Dip will give you a significant career advantage. On the strength of their Management Research Reports, our graduates have gained full-time posts from their placements in financial services, leisure and tourism and major international charities.

Many have also gained significant promotions for instance in the health sector, while alumni in higher education have significantly developed their careers and entered roles such as Head of HR.

In the private sector, students have moved from general administrative and PA positions to heading strategic HR project team initiatives. Others have moved up into international HR management positions for global companies.
