Flexible online study - the key to postgraduate study success in human resources and law
As a human resources professional, Adam was ready to expand his career though postgraduate study – but needed the flexibility to be able to do it while working full time in Victoria. He found the perfect fit with the University of Newcastle’s Master of Human Resources and Law which can be completed 100 per cent online.
“I decided to pursue postgraduate study to achieve a level of professional development that was second to none,” said Adam.
“The Master of Human Resources and Law was an undertaking that I identified would further develop my range of professional skills in areas including employee relations, workplace health and safety and employment law.”
Having the option to complete the program online meant that Adam could set aside study hours in his own time while also balancing his work commitments. But it did require a level of planning and dedication.
“Setting regular, short and intense periods of concentrated study and learning time has been key for me as I often work 50-hour weeks.
“It’s definitely possible to achieve excellent grades and work full time, you simply need to develop a structure that you adhere to and ensure that the area of study you undertake is something you are passionate about,” added Adam.
With a Master of Business Administration specialising in Human Resource Management already under his belt, Adam knew the Master of Human Resources and Law would help advance his role as a Human Resources and OHS Advisor.
“I will now be able to apply this knowledge to the workplace and take the next step of my career into a Human Resources Manager role.
“I hope to be able to apply the learning outcomes in an international setting. Working overseas in different cultures and business climates is something that I am very keen to pursue,” said Adam.
