This course combines an analytical approach to human resource management with strong psychology-based modules. Software and skills training are also integral parts of the course. These provide an excellent range of vocational skills that can be used in employment across a range of industries.

The course is a 1 year full-time or 2 year part-time day and evening.

Course Objectives
This course is designed to provide students with the skills needed to diagnose organisational human resource needs, to design and implement human resource interventions and to build strategic human resource goals and programmes. On successful completion of the course, graduates should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the major approaches to the analysis of organisations, of how to run preliminary diagnostic analysis, of how to conduct preliminary strategic analysis, and of how to link diagnostic and strategic analyses to organisational issues.

Course Structure
The course is structured around 6 core modules plus one option so that each student will cover 7 modules in all.

The full-time programme for 2012-2013 is as follows:

Semester 1
Team Work for Effective Organisations
Conflict Resolution: Negotiation
Facilitated Decision Making

Semester 2
Management of Competency and Skill Development Programmes
Organisational Diagnostics

The Project modules runs through Semester 1 and Semester 2.

Pattern of Attendance
Some modules are scheduled for day-time only and some for evening only teaching, which means that students, whether full-time or part-time, may have to be able to attend day and evening classes at some time during the course. Part-time students will normally take two modules in each semester for two years, although work on the Project (examined in the second semester) may extend over both semesters in year two.

You should have a UK Honours Degree (or overseas equivalent) in Business Studies, Psychology or related subjects; or ii qualifications from a course of study which includes a substantial business or management studies component, or a Diploma in Management Studies, or another postgraduate qualification in a discipline relevant to human resource management and business psychology.

If you do not have the above requirements but have a significant amount of relevant work experience as well as the motivation to study at postgraduate level, you are invited to apply for admission - your case will be considered by the selection panel.
