Entry requirements

To study the CIPD Advanced Level 7 Certificate, you should have significant HR experience or an HR degree and be prepared to take on postgraduate-level study.

It's ideal if you're looking for a shorter Level 7 course than the full CIPD Level 7 Diploma.

If English is your second language, we recommend you have an IELTS 6.5/ESOL Level 2 or equivalent, but we're happy to review your case on an individual basis.

Course content

The course is fully online, with most units being assessed through written assignments submitted online.

Two units (HRM in Context and Leading, Managing and Developing People) are assessed through in-person exam. If you'd like to study these, please contact your local British Council to find your nearest CIPD exam venue prior to enrolling.

You'll choose 4 of the following units to study:

  • Human Resource Management in Context
  • Leading, Managing and Developing People
  • Developing Skills for Business Leadership
  • Investigating a Business Issue from an HR Perspective
  • Resourcing and Talent Management
  • Managing Employment Relations
  • Learning and Talent Development
  • Reward Management
  • Employment Law (based on UK law)
  • Leadership and Management Development
  • Organisational Design and Organisational Development

Please note that where the course discusses legislation and policy, this will be based on UK law.

For full details of what you’ll learn on each unit, download our CIPD course guide.

If you'd like to develop a broader HR skillset, the CIPD Level 7 Diploma allows you to study 8 of the above units instead of 4.

As a rough guide, Level 3 is for those with no or minimal HR experience. It’s perfect if you’re looking for your first HR role.

Level 5 is for those with some HR experience who are looking for a mid-level HR role. It’s also suitable if you’re new to HR but have a degree and want to begin your learning at a higher level.

Level 7 is for those with significant HR experience or an HR degree who are ready to take on postgraduate-level study. It’ll prepare you for strategic senior HR roles.

However, we know everyone’s situation is different. Our expert CIPD advisors will talk through your experience, education and ambitions to ensure you’re choosing the right course.

Diploma, Certificate and Award indicate the length and scope of your CIPD qualification.

At each CIPD Level, there is a Diploma, a Certificate, and a variety of Awards.

  • CIPD Diplomas are the most comprehensive and desirable CIPD qualifications, covering everything you need to know to excel in your career. Most students choose the Diploma.
  • CIPD Certificates are shorter qualifications, covering only essential units from the Diploma.
  • CIPD Awards are bite-sized courses covering one unit from the Diploma.

Diplomas and Certificates give you CIPD professional membership; Awards don’t.
