The Department of Human Resource Management and Marketing's research activity complements the University of Portsmouth's ambitious research strategy programme. As a result, we work with a range of organisations providing research, consultancy, training and facilities that reflect the expertise within the department. We publish scholarly papers, provide research and prepare reports for all sorts of organisations, write books and work with other institutions to enhance our levels of knowledge and performance.
All our researchers have published leading papers in internationally rated journals, have worked extensively with public and private sector organisations in either a consultancy or training capacity or have written leading textbooks in their subject areas.
An important part of our research strategy is to work with students who are studying for postgraduate research degrees. Through our developing research community, students work closely with their supervisory teams, publish papers and generate high quality work. We welcome and encourage applications from aspiring researchers and people who seek to lead and develop knowledge in their subject areas.
The course can be studied full-time over three years or part-time over six years.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
A second-class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject or a master's degree in an appropriate subject. Exceptionally, equivalent professional experience and/or qualifications will be considered.
English language proficiency at a minimum of IELTS band 6.5 with no component score below 6.0.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.
The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
