It really doesnt matter - HR Mangement is not a high demand course and they will all cover the same stuff.
However, Westminster is not a great option - for any course.

My only other advice is this - be careful of ery specialised 'niche' degrees. You dont ctually need a degree in HR Mangement to work in HR - actually you dont even need a degree : https://www.prospects.ac.uk/job-prof...ources-officer And, what if you change your mind about a career half way though the course - or you cant get a job when you graduate. That degree is not much use for anything else. So, you might want to look at general 'Management' degrees to gove you more potential options on graduation.

Hi there

It's a very difficult decision choosing what university to attend, however some tips I have is to look closer into each course, the modules etc. From there, have a general idea of what course you like better, what modules appeal to you more. You can also look at the university itself, compare the universities based on facilities, support or literally anything you think is important to you for a university to have, You can have a look at accommodation or the town. That way you are taking into account many factors that may help you decide. I would also suggest speaking to your family and friends about each university and see which one you're more passionate about when speaking to them

I hope this helps, and if you do have any questions, please let me know!

This is very good advice. Check if what you want to do even needs a degree, as HR generally doesn’t or will take a degree in anything just to be picky. Apprenticeships work too for some HR.

We already have you advice. It sounds like you want to go to Uni for the sake of the fake uni experience as there are many better routes into HR, your niche course is very limiting. If you want to go then fine, do what you want, but at least look up the unis yourself. You’ve already picked 5. Apply to them and wait to see what offers you get.

Its so far down the League Table for ANY subject you can't see daylight and it has zero acadmic credibility.
