Our MSc in Human Resource Management (HRM) will give you the knowledge, understanding and key skills that are required by today's HR professionals so that you can contribute effectively to dynamic organisations.

We currently plan to deliver a mix of in-person and digital teaching for the academic year starting in September 2021. We are monitoring government guidance on Covid-19 prevention measures and we will adjust our 2021/22 plans in response to any relevant changes. Based on current information we expect some physical distancing measures are very likely to still apply when the academic year starts in September 2021. We anticipate a further update on this later in the Spring.
