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."
