We are pleased to announce that we are now an approved provider of CIPD qualifications.

We became an approved CIPD centre for MSc International Human Resource Management and Development (IHRMD) this summer. IHRMD is new to students this academic year. It has taken us a year and a half to develop this programme which is designed to offer students a research-led professional education programme and prepare them for a career in Human Resource Management and Human Resource Development as well as in general management. IHRMD combines a blend of academic insight into major debates and issues in Human Resource Management, Human Resource Development and Employment Relations with practical application to contemporary human resource policy, practice and people management in an international context. Sarah Robinson, Programme Convenor said:

“This is an exciting new programme which draws on the research expertise of the HR group and offers students the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge through experiential learning. We are delighted that this programme has gained CIPD accreditation and are looking forward to developing our relationship with the CIPD.”

Students will benefit from a CIPD accredited student membership which includes:

  • career support
  • access to CIPD Community – an online platform to network and engage with other HR professionals
  • access to  my CPD map – online self-assessments set against the CIPD Profession Map, showing students what they need to know and do as a HR practitioner at every stage of their career.


CIPD qualifications are seen as the gold standard for the HR profession and employers often seek their HR personnel to be CIPD qualified or in CIPD membership. The CIPD is the professional body for HR and people development. It champions better work and working lives and has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years.
