Course Content

On this Masters in human resource management (HRM) we will encourage you to take a critical perspective on current theory and practice. You will learn to analyse complex problems and come up with creative solutions, and you will develop the skills you need to conduct research on the latest issues in HRM.

You will learn through a number of methods. The students on this course bring a wide variety of backgrounds, academic achievements, and knowledge and experience of HRM with them. This provides a real opportunity for everyone on the course to learn with and from each other. You will use an Individual Learning Plan from the start of the course, which will help support your progress. 

In the final stage of your course, you will work on a consultancy project for a real organisation with a particular HRM challenge that needs a remedy. This will be your opportunity to apply your critical thinking, research, analysis and teamwork skills in a professional environment. It will add considerably to your learning experience and demonstrate the extent of your capabilities. 

Extended Masters option

If you have an undergraduate degree, but do not quite meet the entry criteria for this course, you may qualify for our Extended Masters. You will take two extra modules to prepare you for the course and you must study full time. We also provide English-language support if you need it. Once you complete these two modules, you can progress directly onto the regular Masters course.
