Study Details

MSc/PgDip/PgCert: 42 months part-time online distance learning

The MSc Midwifery/Maternal and Infant Health is an exciting part-time distance learning programme designed to offer postgraduate education of midwives, obstetric nurses and other professionals working or interested in maternal and infant health in a range of clinical environments and geographical contexts.

It will meet the needs of both UK based and international nurses and midwives and offers awards at Certificate, Diploma and Master's level.

This programme is invaluable for all those who want to develop excellence, improve health outcomes for women and infants, and share good practice. Although the Midwifery award is only available to registered or licensed midwives, the MSc Maternal and Infant Health is not limited to specific professionals and the modules will be shared with a range of health and social care professionals studying our other programmes.

Module details

The module portfolio comprises a choice of two research modules, a number of professional modules relating to leadership, quality and clinical governance, and learning, teaching and assessment in practice among others.

Entry Requirements

You must be a registered or licensed midwife with a first degree to enrol on the Midwifery award. The MSc Maternal and Infant Health is open to all those working in maternal and infant health care contexts.

Student Destinations

Our MSc portfolio is designed to support students in achieving their career aspirations beyond their initial roles. While almost all of our students are already in professional roles, students who have completed our masters programmes in the past have gone on into management and other promoted posts as well as specialist roles such as hospital at night and clinical governance leads.

The core requirements of research and professional modules within the programmes ensure that graduates are equipped with a range of key transferable skills that promote excellence, innovation and leadership in practice.
