The MSc Midwifery (pre-registration) programme is aimed at graduates wishing to pursue a career in midwifery. This is an opportunity to study midwifery at master’s level and to provide a strong basis for a future career in clinical work, alongside research, education, management, leadership, or consultancy.

The three-years programme is underpinned by the UK Nursing and Midwifery Council pre-registration midwifery standards and will provide a broad, balanced, coherent, and diverse experience of midwifery practice. Each year consists of a combination of theory and practice-based modules. You will be expected to maintain a portfolio of personal and professional development (PDP).

This course also includes assessment of clinical skills and medicines management. Your practical and clinical practice will be enabled by using our simulation facilities, where you will experience simulation scenarios in a variety of high and minimal risk environments. We also use a maternal and foetal simulation system called Lucina which allows you to appreciate the birthing experience from the onset of labour, through delivery, to treatment of the mother after the birth.

On successful completion of this 3-year programme, you will be eligible to register as a midwife on the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Professional Register and start your career!
