Why study this course?

Successfully complete the Human Resource Management master’s course and you’ll receive a CIPD Advanced Level 7 Associate Membership Certificate.

More about this course

The Human Resources Management MA is an ideal next step to boost your future career opportunities.

You can study full-time in 12 months or part-time (two evenings per week) over two years. This flexibility ensures you have the choice to continue work or other commitments. January and September start dates are available.

You’ll examine the theories of human resource (HR) strategy and practice, covering issues around employee engagement, talent management, and employment law. This will be applied to all business sizes, from entrepreneurial start-ups to large multinational companies.

Your analytical and critical thinking skills will be developed so you can use the theories to solve practical “real life” HR issues in your workplace. We’ll also help you improve your research skills so you can put together a scientific research report. This report will address the HR issues facing your organisation and how you could tackle them.

We’ve structured the course so your learning meets all the CIPD requirements. For example, the CIPD’s Skills for Business Leadership requirements are delivered and assessed across all four of the core modules.


Assessment is both formative and summative, providing you with the opportunity for feedback on your work without it counting towards your final grade. Whether you arrive to the course with junior or more senior HRM experience, you'll find the assessments interesting and challenging.

The assessment methods include written report and essay assignments, comparative analyses, case studies, a skills development portfolio and learning log, presentations and group work. There is also a 12,000 to 15,000 word HRM dissertation.

There are two exams. These exams take place in the first semester and are required by the CIPD across all approved programmes.

Professional accreditation

You will need to join the CIPD when you begin your course.

Upon successful completion of the MA, you’ll gain Associate Membership of the CIPD from which you can apply for professional upgrading linked to your professional experience to achieve Chartered Membership or Chartered Fellowship. Our dedicated CIPD professional adviser can guide you on your application to upgrade to Chartered status.
