PG Dip Human Resource Management and MA Human Resource Management (Top-Up)

“As an HR consultant, I was getting plenty of great experience, but I felt I needed something more to be able to progress my career to the next level. Bridging that gap was a big motivator for me. The knowledge I gained through studying has proved really useful in everything I’ve done since – from setting up my own HR consultancy to working in a specialised role with a global HR provider.
