Angie – China
"The International Human Resource Management masters at UWE Bristol was a well-structured balance of theoretical knowledge and practical workshops. The size of the study group meant that everyone had the chance to interact with the lecturers and colleagues in class.
The diverse background of international HRM teaching staff also blended practitioner concerns with academic, along with cultural awareness and front-line best practice. The teaching staff were always supportive and accessible when we needed help and advice.
I am now an HR Officer in the British Council in Beijing. I like the culture of the organisation which promotes good practice in the workplace."
Siyu – China
"The parts of the course I found most interesting were the workshops that improved my interpersonal skills. I also liked the work shadowing because it gave me a chance to learn more about HRM in a practical setting.
The course has been really useful to me in my career. I am working as an HR Business Partner and I believe I am paid more than I would be without my Master's degree."
Victor – Nigeria
"Studying International HRM at UWE Bristol was an all-round experience. It both helped me to master theory and provided the platforms for putting theory into practice - through work shadowing, my dissertation placement in the National Health Service, and the practical skills module.
Before I came to the University I didn't know much about Bristol as a city. There is so much going on, and it's also a beautiful environment. I’m now self-employed in my home city in Nigeria."
Trang – Vietnam
"Joining UWE Bristol’s International HRM Masters is so far the best decision I have made. The HRM research project gave me golden opportunities to observe a professional British organisation. I have learned so much about work from that experience.
I now work as a professional HR Specialist with Sanofi, the multinational pharmaceutical company."
