The University of Bedfordshire Business School has a special, distinctive way to bring together real business practice, academic research and innovative approaches to learning. At the heart of your learning experience here is a rigorous approach to practice. That means that you will experience how academic learning informs and improves a managers business performance, and how practical experience informs and develops an understanding of theory. You will have numerous contacts with real business and HRM projects and real HR managers, making the links all the time between your studies and practice. Our innovative approaches to learning start with the Business Pods, which have established a reputation for excellent first year undergraduate education. In your second year and final year your studies will centre on gaining the knowledge underpinning Human Resource Management. You will be introduced to practical techniques and tools and encouraged to develop professional behaviours which will enable you to become an HR professional. In your final year, you will also bring together and extend your experience in real world projects for real companies. Employers value people who can think rigorously and creatively about problems. They value people who can get things done. On this course, you will bring the thinking and the doing together.
