This integrated Master’s degree combines three years of undergraduate study with an additional fourth year at postgraduate level, in a single course. You could also gain 120 credits at postgraduate level which you could use towards a Master's qualification. In addition to academic and professional qualifications, you will complete the Newborn and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE) and UNICEF Baby Friendly Initiative qualifications. We are passionate about developing the best graduate midwives who support women and families during the most uplifting and sometimes challenging times of their lives. This course will prepare you to become a midwife who is able to meet the needs of women, newborn infants and their families. Our approach to learning and teaching has been developed using a variety of frameworks and embraces the wealth of knowledge of the course team, practice partners and service users. The course will incrementally build on the skills and knowledge you will gain in practice and at university in order to support you to achieve the necessary level of competence and ability to make evidence-based decisions. Every aspect of the course has been carefully aligned to the standards of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (2019).
