Course content

This is a pre-registration course

Are you a compassionate person who wants to ensure women have a safe and life-enhancing experience during their maternity care?

‘Mid Wif’ means ‘with woman’ and this has underpinned the relationship between midwives and pregnant people for hundreds of years. The term ‘pregnant woman’ is commonly used across the world, and in evidence-based guidance for maternity care, to refer to all childbearing people. The MSc Midwifery Studies course has been developed to incorporate the changing context of childbearing and the future direction of midwifery practice, whilst drawing on the essential elements of midwifery.

The MSc has been designed to meet the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), enabling you to apply for professional registration as a midwife in the UK upon successful completion of your degree. Building upon our successful BSc (Hons) Midwifery Studies course, we will support you to develop the knowledge and skills of a competent midwife. However, the MSc will also develop your graduate capabilities further, enabling you to work at a higher academic level, with a greater focus on innovation, leadership and research skills.

You will leave the course as a confident graduate who is able to deliver high quality care to childbearing women, their babies and families. Not only this, you will also be equipped to take up exciting research and leadership roles, with competencies that will help you move into more specialist areas and support improvements in midwifery care.

Delivered partially in our clinical skills centre, you will have access to state-of-the-art facilities and training equipment that is at the forefront of the midwifery practice. You will also undertake a wide range of clinical placements, with the option for specialist placements such as perinatal mental health, and the opportunity to provide continuity of carer.

Northumbria University is proud to be ranked 9th in Nursing & Midwifery education in the UK (Guardian University League Tables 2020).
