Student Profile(s)

Syrita Foster

"I started the Postgraduate Diploma in HRM to help me deliver an improved HR function to our organisation. I opted to study part time whilst working full time which was difficult at times, but it gave me the ability to manage my time like never before. I knew that classroom based sessions were the right choice for me as I wanted to be able to learn from the experiences of other HR professionals. During the programme we learnt so much, not just from the lecturers and course content but also from each other. It really helped to have other students to study with and keep each other motivated.

Completing this course has completely changed my way of working to be much more strategy and impact driven. The organisation I work for has seen an immediate benefit from each of the modules I have studied and they value my new approach to working. For me personally, the PG Dip HRM has opened up many more opportunities."

The Dr Mike Daniel Research Degree Scholarship awards £500 to a postgraduate research degree student at the University of Northampton.

Dr Mike Daniel was Pro Rector (Academic Quality) from 1993-2002 and played a major role in guiding the institution towards taught degree awarding powers and university college designation. After his untimely death in 2002 friends and colleagues raised sufficient funds to create a research degree scholarship to be named after him.

The award recognises the financial difficulties often experienced by research degree students. In particular, the award is aimed at specific costs often associated with an individual research programme, for example, travel, software and closed library access.
