Course content

This flexible course enables any practising graduate midwife to undertake an individualised degree study pathway in which credits from prior study may be used. The study pathway can be tailored to current and future learning and development needs and aims to facilitate pathway specialisation where possible and if desired. The successful student will be able to demonstrate mastery in skills and knowledge related to their specialty area in order to contribute to enhanced professional practice, research and service development. It is possible to study a work-based learning route.

Core modules include either IPL 4412 Methods of Critical Enquiry in Health Care Settings or WBS 4835 Work Based Learning Research Methods. Other modules are optional according to the your individualised pathway, except for the dissertation (or work based learning project) which is compulsory.

You will be likely to have enhanced career prospects if, on completion of the course, you are able to demonstrate that you have met the required professional competencies for advanced practice as well as having a postgraduate qualification.
