Do you want to work in a discipline that has a major impact on the excellence of people at work? Our highly experienced academic team works with you in small workshop groups which operate in a friendly, supportive and highly active way to enable you to develop those skills which will make you an effective manager of people as well as a human resource professional whose expertise can support employers create successful organisations and employees to lead fulfilling working lives. You will not get lost in huge lectures; our learning spaces have been specifically designed to facilitate our small group-based approach. We believe this enables us to meet your personal interests, needs and aspirations in a more effective way, and supports your development as a well-motivated, confident learner, and ultimately highly employable graduate. This CIPD accredited degree will equip you with the essential knowledge and skills to prepare you for a successful career in a complex and ever changing business world, whether you intend to work in human resource management or any other area of business.
In the first year, you will study a range of management-related subjects, designed to ensure you have a broad foundation and knowledge of management, joining with students from a range of business-related degree routes. You will consider the human, legal, economic, financial and technology-related issues managers are faced with, and the tools and techniques they use. The second year focuses more specifically on key aspects of human resource management, such as training and development, employee relations and leadership, as well as giving you the opportunity to choose from a range of other modules, to meet your particular interests. The third year (or fourth, if you have taken the opportunity for a year’s professional placement after year two) moves to consider in greater depth the strategic importance of HRM in the creation and management of successful innovative organisations, as well as providing the opportunity of a ten-week work placement.

English language requirements
The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
Further details of our international entry requirements can be found on our website.
