Keele Management School has been delivering high quality part-time distance-learning courses for over 20 years. We continue to offer lifelong learning opportunities to trade unionists, managers, and anyone else involved, or interested, in Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management (HRM).

Staff are active teachers and researchers within their specialist fields and are experienced adult educators. Most of our students have a practical knowledge of Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management.

Part-time courses take 18 months for the PgD, and a further 6 months for the MA. Direct enrolment on to the MA normally requires a second class honours degree. However, applicants with professional qualifications or equivalent experience may also be accepted, subject to interview.

See the website https://www.keele.ac.uk/pgtcourses/industrialrelations/

Course Aims

Our part-time courses are suitable for those in full-time employment and are flexible enough to allow completion by students from anywhere in the UK.

Our courses explore key issues such as:
- Theoretical approaches to the employment relationship
- Collective bargaining and trade union organisation
- Performance and reward management systems
- HRM and approaches to labour management

Course Content

The Masters courses are delivered through a taught part consisting of eight 15 credit modules (totaling 120 credits) and one 60 credit dissertation. Students who successfully complete only the taught modules will be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma. The part-time courses start in September each year and are designed to be taken over eighteen months (Postgraduate Diploma) or two years (MA).

The courses are designed to be both practicable and accessible to those in full-time employment who want to build on their own experience to gain an academic qualification. Our part-time Masters courses are therefore available by distance learning with residential study periods at Keele, and extensive learning support. They are flexible enough to allow completion by students anywhere in the UK, Ireland, or Europe, and from any occupation.

- Dissertation
The dissertation is 15,000-20,000 words. Where applicable, students are encouraged to undertake research connected with their current or previous industrial relations or HRM experience. Students are required to produce a written research proposal, material is supplied on research methods, and all students are allocated a supervisor.

Teaching & Assessment

- Teaching delivery:
The Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) course is delivered through six residentials at Keele over both years of study supported by distance learning study packs, electronic resources and a dedicated personal tutor for the core part of the course. Each student does eight assignments.

Students who register for the MA (or progress from the PgD to the MA) attend two further residentials in year 2 and write a dissertation of between 12,000 and 15,000 words. Where applicable, students are encouraged to undertake research connected with their current or previous industrial relations or HRM experience. Material is supplied on research methods, and all students are allocated a supervisor.

Residentials are held in September, January, April and June of each academic year.

- Assessment:
Each module on the taught part of the course is assessed through an essay, with a pass mark of 50%. For those taking the Masters course there is a research methods essay and a dissertation of 15,000-20,000 words.

Additional Costs
