You will also acquire applied research skills.

The programme is recognised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

International entry requirements

If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, the requirement for this programme is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 7.0, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
