Course summary

Course Overview

HR professionals are in demand as the people who mobilise an organisation's greatest asset: its people. This master's will allow you to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to lead and manage people in the competitive business environment.

This course is designed for professionals who have an organisational responsibility for human resources at an operational, tactical or strategic level and are looking for professional and career development.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) have accredited our course, adding value to you when you graduate.

Build the skills you need to give businesses an edge

Our course balances academic theory and practical knowledge and skills. You'll learn advanced theories and strategic insights alongside developing your organisational, leadership and management skills.

Our range of contemporary, optional modules give you the opportunity to specialise. Whether you're interested in organisational development, learning and development, occupational psychology or employment law, we give you the chance to further your knowledge in those areas.

Start your journey as a professional HR practitioner

Employers will value your master's. It is accredited by the CIPD, the largest body for HR professionals in Europe.

What are my career prospects

We've designed this course to give you an advantage when applying for a position in Human Resource Management and similar roles.

Recent graduates have gone on to jobs in positions such as:

  • Diversity manager
  • Employee relations specialist
  • External recruitment consultant
  • Learning and development manager
  • Learning design manager
  • HR Business Partner.

HR isn't limited to major businesses with hundreds of employees. Some of our graduates work as consultants, helping SMEs and start-up businesses.

There is a huge demand in HR advice, especially when a company can't invest in a full-time HR professional. Graduates have set up their own HR consultant companies and some work as freelance consultants.

We help you find employment after graduation. We have a dedicated team of careers and employment specialists, who work in partnership with academic colleagues, employers and the Students' Union to prepare you for the world of work and guide your career management.
