Student Profile - Jose Barbero

Jose Barbero,
MA Industrial Relations & Managing Human Resources, Argentina

The critical approach of the course at Warwick appealed to me.


I was working as a job interviewer in Argentina when I saw that an interviewee had a Masters degree in Human Resources at the University of Warwick. This gave me the incentive to apply for similar courses myself. I started to research different courses within the UK and other English speaking countries such as the United States and Canada, but I found the critical approach of the course at Warwick appealed to me over the other courses available. I looked at the Warwick website a lot and I asked Human Resource professionals in my country, many of whom had heard of Warwick and could recommend it.

The best thing about being at Warwick is being on campus. The facilities and resources available are excellent and I really like Heronbank accommodation where I live with my wife. I am a member of the sports centre and I attend the chaplaincy regularly. The other members of the chaplaincy were extremely welcoming and I have enjoyed attending the trips that have been organised by this group. I have visited several different places whilst being here in the UK, such as Stratford and London and I have applied to visit a family in Sussex as part of the HOST scheme.

When I graduate I am going to return to Argentina to develop my career in Human Resources. I aspire to be a solid Human Resources professional and would like to teach at universities in Argentina and eventually become a HR consultant.

I would advise any student thinking about applying to the University of Warwick, to seriously consider Warwick as an option. I have had no hesitations of my decision to study here.
