Course Description

Human Resource Management (HRM) examines the processes and principles associated with the management of work and people. HR professionals and managers operate within increasingly complex and changing organisational and contextual circumstances, whether in the market, public or ‘third’ sectors irrespective of the size of their organisations or the types of goods or services provided.  

This programme of study has been designed to meet and reflect the CIPD’s* current professional standards and expectations, designed to broaden your awareness of HR generalist and specialist functions in a UK and international context, considering how internal and external context impact upon HRM, the role of the HR practitioner and how HRM can lead to better work and better working lives. 

Aiming to give you wide exposure to a range of organisations, you should explore the relationship of HR to other functions in the organisation and the contribution of HR to achieving corporate objectives. The course also includes an optional work placement of a minimum of six to eight weeks within the HRM department of an organisation in the UK, as part of the Project module (subject to availability, competitive application, meeting visa requirements and additional fees may apply). Following a competitive application process, this could provide you with the unique opportunity to assess the theories introduced within the classroom, in the context of a specific work organisational environment. 

The course aims to help you develop a range of academic and employability skills, alongside HRM specific knowledge and understanding in line with the current CIPD requirements*. Modules will also offer experience of applied HR in practice, by developing HR policy or training solutions as part of your learning experience should you wish to develop a specialised focus.
