CIPD Student Stories: Lina | Level 5 Diploma Review


Enrol today >

Advance your HR career with a globally recognised CIPD qualification.


Lina Saeed chose to study her CIPD Level 5 HRM Diploma with us online to gain the qualifications she needed to progress her career in the HR field.

I’m currently based in Dubai and working for NES Global Talent as an Assignment Support Lead, and I’ve just completed the CIPD Level 5 Diploma with ICS Learn.

After my son started university in London last year, I had a lot of free time to really focus on myself for the first time in 16 years.

I started working in recruitment and HR without any prior relevant qualifications, so I decided to make myself more employable for future HR roles by studying a highly recognised HR course.

After researching different roles and job specifications, it became evident that if I wanted to further my career and become an HR specialist in the UAE, I would need to obtain a CIPD certificate or diploma.

I started searching for CIPD providers based in the UAE, but quickly realised that prices were highly inflated and beyond what I could afford to pay.

Moreover, the tight and inflexible classroom schedule would have meant taking time off work to attend the lectures which simply didn’t appeal to me.

Then, I started looking for online course providers. ICS Learn is always on top of the search results thanks to their high rankings and excellent reputation.

The course is super flexible and allowed me to fit my studies, coursework, and assignments around my busy schedule.

ICS Learn’s tutors and support team are nothing but amazing. They’re always on hand to answer any questions quickly and efficiently.

My assignments were always marked within a couple of days, meaning I could quickly move from one module to the next.

I would highly recommend ICS Learn to anyone wishing to complete their CIPD studies in a flexible and affordable way.

It’s never too late to learn something new!
