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 activities.

The 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.

Professional accreditation

We are proud to be in an elite group of business schools to hold the triple accreditations of Equis, AMBA and AACSB, often referred to as the "Triple Crown".

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the leading UK professional body for HR specialists, accredits our programme in recognition of the fact that it meets rigorous academic and professional standards.

The programme provides the underpinning knowledge required to achieve professional levels of CIPD membership. More information is available on the CIPD website.

What you will study

This programme aims to prepare prospective human resource professionals to operate as effective practitioners who are able to comply with the highest professional standards and to continuously develop their professional capability.

This involves equipping students with the skills and knowledge required to work effectively in changing and challenging environments and to develop in them the competencies required to think critically and strategically within an organisational context.

Core Modules

Option Modules

Learning and assessment

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.

Career prospects

Our HRM graduates – aware of the complex nature of people management and regulation – will be able to demonstrate the value of being able to handle employees well in the modern working environment.

Career opportunities exist in human resources, recruitment and general management.

Among the organisations recently to have employed our graduates are Asda, Horton Housing and even the University of Bradford.

Study abroad

Students have an opportunity to broaden their international experience by taking part in study tours embedded alongside our programmes throughout the year. These tours are provided by the Faculty where all expenses are covered. Previous tours have included trips to Bahrain (Ahlia University) and Qatar (Qatar University).

These tours help our students to gain knowledge about international business and entrepreneurship, as well as providing opportunities to practice and develop communication and interpersonal skills. Students are given a hands-on opportunity to apply the knowledge they have gained in class, all whilst becoming more aware of diverse cultures and strengthening international relationships.

Students take part in a dynamic mix of both theory and practice-related activities including: interactive problem-solving workshops, company visits, talks by guest speakers (from the public and private sector), cultural visits, and social activities.

Study support

All module leaders have ‘open door’ sessions where they are available to students on a weekly basis. You’ll be allocated a personal tutor throughout your studies, and a supervisor to guide you through your dissertation projects and act as a research mentor.

The Effective Learning Service (ELS) is a dedicated facility within the School of Management, established to support our students to maximise their academic learning (e.g. assignments and examinations) as well as help overseas students adapt quickly to UK academic requirements.

The ELS provides a huge range of services, including various workshops run during term time, 1-1 consultations and vast printed and online resources to cater for every possible development area.

Research

All teaching staff are highly research active, and publish widely. As much as is possible, teaching staff incorporate their own research into the teaching.

There is a dedicated HRM research methods course which teaches HRM practitioners how to conduct people management research and analyse their findings. Students complete a dissertation (practical research project) to address an actual issue in a business as their final assessment.
