Course content

Develop, deliver and direct high-quality midwifery services, helping the drive towards improving maternity and health outcomes for women and their families.

This course aims to equip midwives and maternity nurses with the knowledge and skills required to lead practice change, follow a career in research and/or higher education, or work at senior and strategic levels in today's midwifery and healthcare services.

To achieve this, our Division of Midwifery offers a learning environment that facilitates the development of reflective, analytical and evidence-based critical thinking to challenge existing midwifery practice, challenge maternity service provision and lead and manage change.

We are a small division, with a real sense of community. Our experienced teaching staff get to know you as an individual and provide dedicated student support throughout the study programme.

Our programme prepares and supports you to go into research or research as part of your practice-based role.
