CIPD Advanced Human Resource Management

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Management provides an excellent base for developing a career in people management and development. The 2 year course replaces the Professional Development Scheme (PDS) as the most widely recognised postgraduate level professional qualification for HR and development practitioners. The course is designed to be flexible so you can achieve the Certificate with one year of study or the Diploma with two years of study. The course is equivalent to SCQF Level 11 and the Diploma will provide the knowledge and understanding required for the CIPD Chartered Membership Grade (MCIPD).

Course cost £2500 per year

Fees include course textbook provision and online resources (Emerald Database). In addition, CIPD membership is a requirement. Students pay this cost directly to CIPD.
