The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course if you wish to begin studying with us in 2017. They should be used as a general guide.
We operate a flexible admissions policy – this means that you could receive a lower conditional offer than the typical offer, informed by our assessment of your complementary non-academic achievements and experiences. For courses that require interview or portfolio review, this may also be considered in the level of any conditional offer that follows if your application is successful.
Degree and experience
For entry to MSc Year 1 candidates normally require a good UK degree minimum 2.2 hons (or overseas equivalent) in a people, business, humanities or a social science subject. Candidates with a CIPD qualification and HR experience who successfully complete a pre-entry assignment will also be considered. Work experience in HR is desirable but not essential.
If you are a CIPD chartered member, or have previously completed any CIPD Level 7 qualifications, these may provide exemptions for modules. Contact us to find out if you are entitled to any exemptions for the 1 year full-time course or later entry points for the part-time course.
For non-native speakers of English
In order to benefit from, contribute to and enjoy the course, a good command of spoken and written English language is required. If English is not your first language, you will need English language proficiency equivalent to an overall IELTS score of at least 6.5, with 6.0 in the written test and a minimum of 5.5 in the other elements.
If your language skills do not match the IELTS standards above, you should consider applying for this course through our Extended Masters programme.
