About the Programme

  • The BSc in Human Resource Management is studied as a progression, from the Certificate to the Diploma and then the full Bachelors.

  • Studying the BSc gives you the opportunity to not only build on the theories and topics covered within the Certificate and Diploma level, such as examining organisational behaviour, HRM, employee relations and employment development, but also to focus in-depth on some of the key issues within HRM today.

  • The programme consists of 12 core and 3 elective modules, which are assessed by assignments, followed by research methods and the dissertation.


  • On completion of the BSc HRM, graduates will understand the key principles of high-performance working and critically review the links between performance and HRM practices. They will develop the skills to evaluate the tensions between the interests of employers and employees in the management of performance as well as identify recent trends and issues concerning flexible learning in the workplace.
