Selection process

All Oxford Brookes University Health and Social Care Programmes conduct Value Based Recruitment (VBR). We recognise that values and attitudes have the greatest impact on the quality of people's care and their experiences.

VBR is a way of helping our Programme recruitment teams to assess the values, motives and attitudes of those who wish to work with people in health and social care settings. When we refer to values we mean, for example, the values included in the NHS constitution.

VBR focuses on 'how' and 'why' an applicant makes choices in how they act and seeks to explore reasons for their behaviour.

English language requirements

All non-UK midwifery applicants are required to have an IELTS score of 7.0 in all areas.

Course content

Our MSc in Midwifery (pre-registration) is for graduates with a first degree, leading to registration at master’s level.

You will have the opportunity to develop and refine your academic skills. This allows you to:

  • critique and synthesise the best available evidence base which informs clinical midwifery
  • identify areas to improve knowledge
  • engage in undertaking research that aims to improve an aspect of care provision for women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and beyond.

Our lecturers are experienced in their specialist practice areas. They maintain excellent practice links with those areas locally and across the region.

You should have a deep understanding of the importance of woman-centeredness. Combined with excellent interpersonal skills and leadership potential.

A master’s degree in midwifery will provide you with a strong basis for a future career in clinical work. Alongside research, education, management, leadership or consultancy.
