This University of Gloucestershire Masters Stage Award is ideal if you already hold a Graduate Membership (Postgraduate Diploma equivalent) from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), or have demonstrated that you meet the knowledge requirements, as in most cases, it allows you direct entry to the Masters Stage.

The programme is delivered as a part-taught provision. The focus is on strategic integration of human resource management / development through application, via the Dissertation and supporting Research Methods workshops.
