You should study the modules in the order shown. However if you wish to start in May, you can do so by taking Workplace learning with coaching and mentoring (B867) first as a standalone module. When you register for The human resource professional (B863) and meet the entry requirements for the qualification, B867 can be linked to the qualification.
As part of this qualification you'll need to study two optional modules. We strongly recommend that you study Employment relations and employee engagement (B866) and Workplace learning with coaching and mentoring (B867), rather than Managing research in the workplace (B865), as the research methods and work-based project elements for the MSc in HRM are covered by the compulsory module Dissertation (HRM) (B804).
To gain this qualification, you need 180 credits as follows:
