Bhavisha Patel, MSc Human Resource Management (International) (IHRM)
I had completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Korean Language in my home country and was looking into associated careers. I was particularly interested in Organisational Psychology or Human Resources and felt a Postgraduate qualification from the UK would greatly enhance my employability when I returned home.
Professionally accredited degree
The IHRM programme at UWE is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD), a world-wide accreditation that leads directly to Associate Membership of the CIPD.
Alongside the professional accreditation I was really drawn to the structure of the course. It has a very practical element to it; rather than just theory or research – and I thought this would be greatly beneficial to be able to put my learning into practice during my studies.
I’m currently in my second semester and I’m really enjoying it. The lectures in the department are all really nice and incredibly supportive. I was a bit worried, having come from a non-HR background, I didn’t know what to expect and whether it would be a big step from my Undergraduate degree. But this hasn’t been the case at all, I haven’t felt the need to catch-up, and this is all down to the teaching and the openness of the faculty staff.
Mentoring and work shadowing
I’ve recently taken part in work shadowing, it’s an opportunity for students to spend time with a real HR professional in the field. I was placed with a small, local firm close to the University (CIMPA) and they were fantastic. Straight away, I was able to make distinct connections from the learning in my course to how this works in practice and I’ve found this really useful to refer back to in my lectures.
I can’t recommend this course enough, whatever nationality, your previous studies or even the work you’re doing now. This course is for anyone and for international students, provides a truly global outlook on HRM delivered in a practical and supportive setting.
