The CIPD Level 7 (Advanced) Diploma in Human Resource Management

Why Study for a CIPD Level 7 Qualification?

The CIPD Level 7 Diploma is set at Postgraduate level and is the most widely recognised professional qualification in the field of Human Resources (HR) and is the highest level of CIPD qualification.

The Advanced Diploma will provide you with a breadth of knowledge alongside the opportunity to specialise in your chosen area of expertise. The qualification will enable you, on successful completion and depending on experience, to upgrade your CIPD Professional Membership to Chartered Member (MCIPD) or perhaps even Chartered Fellow (FCIPD).

The Advanced (Level 7) Diploma in HRM qualification is suitable for those who: 
  • Are responsible for HR decision making within an organisation at an operational, tactical or more strategic level 
  • Have responsibility for the HR function and activities within an organisation, including HR development 
  • Are working as an independent or employed HRM/HRD consultant, supporting organisations to meet their goals

It is essential that you can demonstrate:
  • Strategic HR Management experience – this could involve a range of experience including that of a generalist, specialist or consultant
  • If you are an operational manager and show strategic management experience, and you want to broaden your career into HR, then you may be eligible
  • Ability to engage confidently at Post-Graduate level. Education to at least Bachelor level (BA, BSc) could be considered as a benchmark, although this is not a definite requirement
  • A high level of English proficiency – spoken and written (IELT Level 6.2 minimum)
Oakwood will undertake a comprehensive 'diagnostic' process with each student. This will involve a review of your CV, Job Description(s) (where appropriate), an IELT test (where appropriate), and a telephone or face-to-face interview. The purpose of this is not only to show your ability to undertake the rigours of the programme, but to ensure the Level 7 programme is right for you.

All applications for the Level 7 programme will be assessed ultimately by Oakwood's Head of International Studies, Fleur Blanford and Head of Level Faculty, John Mitchell. If you wish to enrol, and feel you are eligible, or you would just like to have a chat about eligibility, please contact our Head of Operations in Dubai Euan Campbell.
Unlike a university or other HR Post-Graduate programmes, Oakwood’s students are selected on the basis of their professional attainment, not purely on academic qualifications. This means that our students will all be seasoned professionals with significant experience in the field of Strategic HR Management.

All our Faculty facilitators are already delivering Masters Level Programmes in UK Universities at the moment. Some are published authors in the field of HR. They can all claim Strategic HR Management experience as well as the highest levels of HR academic qualifications.

There will be a high level of interaction with learners, and a strong emphasis on the practical application of theory. A full range of the latest teaching methodology will be used, including electronic media. Guest speakers will feature at various points in the programme.

Each student will be provided with guidance and mentoring as required, particularly covering examination preparation, and also the progress of their Research Report. Additionally all students will be given access to a ‘Virtual Learning Environment’ (VLE), which provides electronic versions of books, journals and periodicals essential for study and research on the programme.
