This flexible course is a part-time Masters level course for those who wish to enhance their effectiveness and confidence in the workplace.

It provides a rounded introduction to the principles of management and is designed to have immediate relevance and application in your current role whilst also providing potential for future progression in both study and your HR career.

The teaching hours are designed to have minimal impact on the working day and additional study is undertaken in your own time, so you can study while working, and won't need ask your employer to release you for significant amounts of time. You can, however, still benefit from regular contact with lecturers and your fellow students.

The MA Human Resource Management has two significant parts. Firstly, there is the Research Methods module. This is a stand-alone module but is also designed to act as the springboard for the next stage, the management report (also known as the dissertation). The Research module is run over one term, usually between 5.00pm – 9.00pm, one day a week for six sessions. Normally the courses start in September and April each year, although this can vary. The MA (HR) course is intended to run over three terms, one for the Research module, and two for the completion of the Management Report (dissertation).

Visit the website: https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/study-here/courses/postgraduate/human-resource-management.aspx

Course detail

The focus is on personal development of the student group as HR professionals and on developing your managerial techniques, knowledge and skills that are required in the working environment. Throughout the course you will be encouraged to apply your studies to your organisation and to discuss your experiences in class to create a dynamic learning environment. As most students on this focused pathway are already in HR management positions, the opportunity to share in the experience and good practices of your peer group is an invaluable part of the course.

Part 1 – Research Methods:
• (20 M level/Level 7 Credits)
• Taken over one term.

Part 2 – The Management Report (Dissertation):
• (40 M Level / Level 7 Credits)
• Taken over two terms with an allocated supervisor.

Suitability

The MA in Human Resource Management is aimed exclusively for HR professionals who have already completed the CIPD diploma and want to use that to claim exemptions and to attain a full Masters qualification.

Format

The research methods module is run as a small group of usually 10-12 students. Students can expect some bespoke advice and the opportunity of individual tutorials. This will prepare students well for the management report, for this they will be allocated an individual tutor as a dissertation supervisor. Meetings with the supervisor are held on an individual basis at times to suit both parties. All tutors are selected to act as expert advisors for the research that needs to be undertaken by the student. Research reports should be focused on a real-world HR research issue and can be adapted for use in the work place.

Assessment

For the Research Methods students are required to submit a 5,000-word research proposal. This needs to be passed before students can continue to the Management Report. For the MA, a 12,000-15,000-word Management Research Report (dissertation) is required. The minimum pass mark for these modules is 50%.

What can I do next?

Many successful candidates from this course benefit from using their new found qualification and confidence to progress their careers with their current employer, or to use it to secure promotions or new employment elsewhere.
