If you’re passionate about your midwifery practice and want to develop your knowledge and skills to an advanced level, our MSc is for you. Supported by an exceptional academic team of experienced midwives within a faculty with a track record for innovative midwifery training, it’ll enable you to advance your existing skills of independent thinking and quickly apply them to your practice.
With concerns about rising rates of intervention, you’ll be encouraged to explore both how to promote normality during childbirth and how to care for vulnerable women with complex needs, with the aim of reducing intervention. The supporting optional modules will help you acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for assuming leadership roles in clinical practice or research.
Successful completion of this course will give you the potential to advance your career into leadership positions within clinical settings, or in the fields of management, research and teaching. You’ll be equipped with the skills and knowledge to become an innovative, forward-thinking practitioner, with the qualities needed to affect change in healthcare planning, delivery and education.
You’ll also have the opportunity to complete the course with an additional qualification as a Newborn Infant Physical Examination (NIPE) practitioner. Many of our Masters level midwifery students go on to complete professional doctorates.
