    I was hoping i could get some advice please. I am considering studying Human Resource Management & Organisational Analysis MSc at Kings College or MSc Human Resource Management at LSE.
    I currently hold a 2.1 Psychology degree from Essex uni + good a-levels, I am currently working in an Administrative role in a HR dept.

    Has anyone studied these or similar courses? If so, how were they and did they help your career?

    I am aware that the HR profession is very competitive and dread the idea of spending £10,000 on a masters only to end not being able to secure a good job, how likely is this? Considering i do well on the masters.

    Any other advice which may be useful to me would be very much appreciated

    Have you looked at pursuing some CIPD qualifications instead? Highly respected.

    Yes I have. However the certificate alone seems to cost around £3000, whereas the masters courses include full CIPD accreditation

    Hi :-)

    I'm a BSc Psychology (1st Year) student, and was wondering if a CIPD accreditation could be obtained along side studying for a Psychology degree. Frankly 1st year psychology gives you so much free time, and doing this will definitely benefit me in the long term. So, any advice is welcome :-) . Thanks.

    See if your employers will fund you to do the CIPD?
