Which qualification is right for me?

Step 1: Identify your level of study

Advanced level: If you’re experienced, looking to advance to a strategic level, and aspire to become a Chartered Member, then this postgraduate-level qualification is for you.

Intermediate level: If you’re already working in HR or L&D and want to develop your knowledge and skills, then this undergraduate degree-level qualification is the choice for you.

Foundation level: If you’re just starting out in HR or L&D or working in a support role, these A-Level standard courses will make an ideal first professional qualification.

Step 2: Choose your size of qualification

Diploma: Study a wide breadth of subjects.
Successful completion of a Foundation or Intermediate Diploma leads to Associate membership.
An Advanced Diploma also leads to Associate membership, and gives you the knowledge to apply for Chartered Membership (subject to eligibility).

Certificate: Study the essentials employers are looking for.
Successful completion at any level leads to Associate Membership.

Award: Focus on one area.
Get the knowledge and skills in a specific HR or L&D subject.
Note: Awards do not lead to any professional grade of membership but may give you credits toward a Certificate or Diploma.

Each year more than 12,000 individuals join our HR, L&D and specialist study programmes. You can study CIPD qualifications at universities, colleges and training providers in Asia and internationally. Most of our centres offer a range of flexible study options to fit in with your busy schedule.
