Aimed at students looking to top-up a postgraduate HRM qualification with a research project and graduate with a Masters degree
The MSc in HRM (Blended) Top-up is a nine month programme which aims to develop knowledge, competencies and professional skills that help learners address the challenges facing modern organisations. It is solely focused on the completion of a Masters dissertation allowing you time to develop in-depth knowledge and expertise around research methods and your dissertation topic.
The programme underlines the importance of practice-based learning and research by enabling you to investigate an HR issue that is located in a real work situation.

During that time the University has received commendations of good practice from the UK professional body, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), for their innovative and rigorous approach to design and delivery of the dissertation.
The programme enables you to develop the following knowledge and skills:
You will develop theoretically informed and practical recommendations that aim to provide solutions and improve professional practice in your chosen research context, and will have the opportunity to develop your academic skills, professional knowledge and skills as independent learners.
The dissertation will build your professional and academic knowledge and expertise around a particular area of HR practice. It enables you to build credibility and confidence within that area and aids your professional development.
