A study mode that supports the demands of a busy professional life
This course will introduce you to the tools and techniques that you will need to progress your HR career within the UK context.
At Middlesex we understand that increasing demands from employers makes balancing your work and family life challenging, and that to make time for study and professional development during the week just isn’t an option for some.
That’s why we are pleased to provide our MA HRM on a part-time block basis at our Hendon campus, enabling you to study over a number of weekends and making it possible to do your job, work towards your masters qualification and still have time for family life. Please note the on-line support is supplementary to the weekend block sessions. The course has not been designed as a distance learning programme.
Who is it for?
This mode of delivery has been designed with the busy HR professional in mind - candidates need to currently be working in a HR role to qualify for this mode of study.
It is particularly suited to those at an early or intermediate stage of their HR careers but who haven’t yet had an opportunity to study for a qualification in HR, and those who are looking to gain the skills and expertise to move into more senior positions.
The Middlesex Advantage
We have one of the UK’s highest HR research profiles, with a team including six professors, six associate professors and four visiting professors.
Our academics teach as well as research, so their findings feed directly into the curriculum. Middlesex University
is amongst the UK’s top 10 for graduate employment.
Study that ensures complete understanding
The block workshop format, though intensive, provides face-to-face tutor led sessions and group interaction with your peers, where you are encouraged to draw on your practitioner expertise to contribute to the topics under discussion, helping you to develop understanding from real life examples.
We provide online supported learning, guided study and activities which enable you to prepare for sessions in advance and follow up on your face-to-face workshops. Online support materials have been designed to help you navigate the demands of an intensive block course.
How much of my time would I spend studying?
There will be 18 face-to-face contact weekends over the 2 years of study. These weekends consist of 10 double weekends, with workshops on both Saturday and Sunday, and 8 single workshops on Saturday only. Each workshop will run for approximately six hours.
As with all our part-time courses you will need to set aside additional time, at least one evening a week and additional weekends, to undertake reading, relevant study and complete assignments.
2:2 (hons degree) or equivalent qualification. Applicants without a degree who have practical experience in personnel work will also be considered, but you will need to demonstrate your ability on the basis on courses already attended, references supplied, a 2,000-word essay and an interview.
