During your second year you will focus more on human relations and gain an understanding of the key principles involved in the discipline. You will also have the opportunity to study international business, entrepreneurship or project management. 

In your final year you will examine case studies in human resources management which will encourage the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills by drawing on current research and organisational case studies and applying these to specific HRM problems. You will also gain an overview of the ways in which day-to-day human resources activities are subjected to some form of regulation.


Professional Practice Placement Module

This work placement module provides an excellent opportunity for students to develop and apply a range of competencies associated with employment in an area of business which interests them, including the creative technology industries, and for which their undergraduate degree work (including the career management skills addressed in first year Skills for Business module and second year Managing Organisations module) has provided a suitable preparation.

The overall aim of the module is to enhance students’ work-related skills, knowledge and experience of working in a particular sector, thereby improving their employability. Students will be encouraged to find their own placements with help and guidance from module tutors. Placements may be with private, public or voluntary/not-for-profit sector organisations and students will be required to spend a minimum of 80 hours in the workplace. This might be done as a block in the summer recess between years 2 and 3, on a one day per week basis during the autumn term of year three or the placement might be structured in another way to suit the employer and the student. These alternatives are intended to provide maximum flexibility for all parties and so encourage employer and student participation.

To pass the module, a student will also be required to complete a learning log, a reflective summary report of their experiences and an oral presentation on the organisation and her or his role therein.
