We’re planning to teach through a flexible combination of online and face to face learning for the first few months of the new academic year. If you’re thinking about starting with us in autumn 2020 or spring 2021, check back for more detail on arrangements for this course in July and August, and see our current plans for teaching and learning.

You can choose to start this course in October 2020 and in January 2021. This is because we've changed some of our teaching arrangements in response to the coronavirus outbreak. Whenever you start, you'll get the same great learning experience with lots of support to do your best.

What will you study on the MSc Midwifery Studies?

This programme enables you, the practising midwife, to plan an individualised pathway of postgraduate study designed to meet previously identified midwifery related professional and service development objectives. You will be able to demonstrate mastery in midwifery-related skills and knowledge in order to contribute to enhanced professional midwifery practice, research and service development.

The programme has been designed so that where possible, level 7 (and some level 6) credits which have been achieved through prior study are recognised as part of this programme (through pre-accreditation or Accredited Prior Learning). The modules can be taken at a pace and frequency according to your circumstances.

You must complete two core modules, shown below. In addition, you can choose subject specific optional modules according to your personal, professional, academic and service development needs. These modules will clearly demonstrate a study pathway in midwifery.
