Human Resource Management and Training MSc, PGDip, by distance learning
2 - 2.5 years
Our programmes in HR management and training gives you the flexibility to work from home, so you don’t fall behind in your professional life. Without strategic guidance and education, employees and organisations have a tough time making real progress. With high-level knowledge and skills in human resource management and training, you'll be the one that makes all the difference.
Teaching and learning
Our programme gives you the flexibility to fit your studies around your professional and personal commitments, while ensuring that you meet the learning and progression requirements.
As a distance learning student you will receive support throughout the course from module tutors and personal tutors to enable you to make the most of your studies.
You will use online study materials available electronically via Blackboard, our virtual learning environment. This will give you online access to materials to support each module. You will also have live seminars which are undertaken in small groups and scheduled so that they re convenient for different time zones.
You will be invited to attend our Leicester Masterclass held on campus at the University. This week-long programme of lectures, activities and workshops takes place every August and is open to students on any School of Business distance learning course at any point in their studies.
You will be assessed during each module by a variety of course work assignments. Your final piece of work, the dissertation, will be 10,000 words.
Online learning is an important feature of this course, therefore it is essential that you have reliable, regular access to the internet (preferably with a broadband connection) in order to participate.
As a distance learning student, you will have access to the University Library's electronic service, the Leicester Digital Library, which includes a large number of e-journals and e-books.
If you live close to Leicester you can, of course, visit the Library and the School of Business facilities in person. For UK-based students who wish to use other libraries, we can issue you with a card which allows you to do so. This is a national scheme which allows distance learning students to borrow material from up to three other participating libraries.
My time at Leicester has given me confidence in my work and helped me learn so much more about the Human Resources field. The lectures have been interesting and relevant, and I have learned a lot here that will help me in the future.
