If you’re passionate about your midwifery practice and want to develop your knowledge and skills to an advanced level, our MSc is for you. Supported by an exceptional academic team of experienced midwives within a faculty with a track record for innovative midwifery training, it’ll enable you to advance your existing skills of independent thinking and quickly apply them to your practice. With concerns about rising rates of intervention, you’ll be encouraged to explore both how to promote normality during childbirth and how to care for vulnerable women with complex needs, with the aim of reducing intervention. The supporting optional modules will help you acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for assuming leadership roles in clinical practice or research.
