Human Resource Management (Top-up)

Once you have successfully completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Human Resource Management (or equivalent), you can progress to this Master's top-up course. Through an intensive learning block, and a self-chosen dissertation, you can become a highly competent HR practitioner with specialist skills to match your chosen career path. On this course you can: take part in skills development workshops where you will contribute to managerial and HR-based activities, participate in live web-based chat forums to discuss your work with lecturers and other students, tap in to our Library's vast selection of electronic resources, which can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection.

Course modules

You will attend a half day induction followed by a four day research methods workshop in May. After the four day research methods workshop in May, you will work on your 2,000 word dissertation proposal for submission in July (full time students) or August (part time students). Following completion of your research proposal, you will be allocated a supervisor who will help you to plan and research a 13,000 word dissertation for submission in November for full time students and the following April for part time students. Your supervisor will support you through email, Skype, telephone conversations, and where practicable, face-to-face meetings.

Assessment methods

You will be allocated a supervisor who will help you plan and research your dissertation. Your dissertation subject choice will determine whether the final award is MSc Human Resource Development or MSc Human Resource Management. You will be supported by your supervisor through email, Skype, telephone conversations and where possible, face-to-face meetings. Assessment differs from unit to unit, but all consist of varying forms of coursework alongside a time-constrained assessment.
