Human Resources

Every organisation needs people management. HR is not only crucial to the success of any organisation, it's also essential for ensuring that ethical responsibility runs right through the business. We have a committed group of staff who are passionate about diversity, equality and fair outcomes for all, and we translate that passion into world-class teaching. All our human resources programmes are also CIPD approved, ensuring you graduate with the skills that employers need.

Studying on our CIPD Courses

Our BA Human Resource Management (HRM) course is CIPD approved to the intermediate level and the MA HRM to the Advanced level. There is a key focus on student employability, and you will benefit from studying professionally approved HR qualifications that develop your theoretical and practical HR know-how. 

You will have access to a large body of HRM alumni who will share their experiences of developing a successful HR career and a teaching staff with a complementary blend of academic and HR practitioner experience. They will support your development as effective HR and people management practitioners.
Individualised study support and guidance from a dedicated team of tutors in skills workshops will encourage the professional enhancement of your leadership, people management capabilities and competencies.

You will be a Student CIPD member for the duration of your studies with access to East London CIPD branch events held at UEL – which can be up to 10 networking and professional development events each year.


Research forms the heart of our teaching in the Human Resource Management and Organisational Studies Group. As organisations are becoming increasingly diverse and globalised, the ethos of the group reflects the importance of ethical and socially responsible management practices.

With links to the Noon Centre for Diversity and Equality, the group has a strong tradition in organisational research exploring discrimination, disadvantage and inequality in the workplace.

 The group’s recent research has focused on subjects including Identity at work, Female Leadership and networks, Ethnicity and higher education attainment, Gender and work, Public services management and leadership, and Career paths and management of women in the HR profession.
