Postgraduate Midwifery

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.
