Human Resource Management with CIPD

Learn how to manage and develop employees, ensure their well-being and understand the latest changes in employment legislation. The MSc Human Resource Management (HRM) will develop your understanding of the theory and practice of people management in work organisations, addressing the skills required for effective analysis and policy information. Our graduates have gone on to work at companies such as Barclays, KPMG and Tesco.

This course is suitable for graduates who have studied any subject who wish to secure their first HR job, or those taking a break and wishing to re-train or re-focus their career. Our MSc HRM is a dual award programme accredited by CIPD, giving full exemption against their Level 7 Advanced Diploma in HRM.

If you are studying a CIPD Diploma qualification, you are required to join the CIPD as a student member at the start of your programme. Upon successful completion of your studies, you will automatically become an Associate professional member which will entitle you to use Assoc CIPD after your name. This ensures that your qualification is recognised by CIPD and that you receive access to HR and development resources and student resources to support you in your study and throughout your career. It also means you?ll avoid paying a non-registration fee. Please note that students join CIPD as individual members, so membership fees are payable directly to CIPD. More information about fees is available on the CIPD webpages.
