If you are already registered as a nurse in adult care, our 18-month MSc Midwifery enables you to gain dual registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a midwife.

Specialising in maternal and neonatal care, you will apply your nursing skills to the standards specific to midwifery, gaining expertise in supporting women and their families through the childbirth continuum.

The programme focuses on normal reproductive physiology, during pregnancy and childbirth, alongside potential complications, including clinical skills provision for women with complex care needs.


Our innovative Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine building provides some of the best teaching and learning resources in the country for Nursing and Midwifery students.

The clinical skills facilities include ward simulations and operating theatres with industry standard equipment, as well as robot-style mannequins that can simulate a wide range of symptoms, from pregnancy to a temperature, to ensure your learning experience is as realistic as possible.

Edge Hill University has excellent relationships with NHS hospital and community trusts, enabling us to offer practice-based learning opportunities in a variety of care contexts, with placements at more than 600 locations across Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire.
