The course is taught on a full-time basis and takes a year to complete.
The university requires an honours degree in any subject, or an equivalent professional qualification. In exceptional cases, the university will consider applicants who do not fulfil the academic requirements, but who have relevant management, or personnel-related experience.
These include employee resourcing, learning and development, employment relations, strategic human resource management and development, and additional relevant management subjects. Students also take a module on research methods, and will need to complete a dissertation and an additional work-based assignment.
The course is aimed at students seeking a broader strategic management role in personnel. Completion of the programme also leads to graduate membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and
