Assessment methods

We understand that each student performs differently depending on the way they are assessed, which is why we use a combination of assessment methods. These include:

a seen case study exam
class tests and quizzes
summaries of e-discussions
group and individual presentations
written work such as management reports
practical assessments such as mock interviews
records of learning

Your tutors will aim to provide assessment feedback within three weeks, and will happily discuss it with you in class or one-to-one. This is particularly important as it gives you a chance to identify your strengths as well as the areas that may need further attention. We also offer study support classes to help you prepare for assessments.

This subject is much more common at postgraduate level, and so be aware that many of the good jobs in HR and personnel management go to graduates with Masters or other postgraduate qualifications in this subject. Work experience for first degree graduates can help to get around the lack of postgraduate qualifications, but if you want to go into management you might find that Masters to be an advantage. Although human resource roles are much the most common outcome for graduates from these courses, they take those jobs in an impressive array of industries so there are plenty of options for the kind of employer you can work for. If you would like to know about graduate prospects for your chosen course more specifically, head to an open day to talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do.
