MSc Human Resource Management

Welcome to the MSc Human Resource Management (HRM) course.

The MSc Human Resource Management teaching and administration team look forward to meeting you when you arrive at the University of Stirling to start your MSc course.

The University of Stirling Management School will be running a number of events in September to help you settle in quickly and see how we can help you with your studies.

Some of these events are lectures that give an overview of the Stirling Management School in addition to a specific induction lecture on the MSc HRM. These lectures provide important information and attendance is compulsory.

Reading list

The most common question we are asked is what preparation you can do before you arrive in Stirling. Your understanding of Human Resource Management will be enhanced if you can see how people issues are part of business. The best preparation for advanced study is to read the business pages of a quality international newspaper in the English language every day. It will help you situate the theories and perspectives we will cover on the course in real life examples, not just in your own country.

Please do not feel that you must buy text books or read academic texts before your arrival. Being well informed about the business news is more helpful.


Your confirmed timetable for the first few weeks at Stirling will be available at the start of September. We will go through this information in more detail at the Induction Lecture.
