Applicants for the MA in Human Resources and Consulting are normally expected to have the following qualifications:
- an honours degree or equivalent qualification from a recognised university
- demonstrable English language competence if their first language is not English
We look for a minimum of a 2:1 honours degree or equivalent
(eg, a minimum GPA of 3.2 on a four-point scale or an A grade on a literal scale).
The subject area of the first degree is not critical.
You can find out more about the international qualifications we accept on the main University website.
Non-standard candidates will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Work experience is not a requirement, however because the programme demands the ability to reflect on and discuss professional practice and HR issues, some relevant work experience can be helpful for this programme. For some students, this will have been gained in management education, training or development, consultancy or other branches of management; experience of voluntary organisations is also very useful.
