Equip yourself with the requisite knowledge of evidence based midwifery practice and skills required to provide holistic women and family centred care.

Edinburgh Napier University are proud to offer the new pre-registration Masters of Midwifery programme.

Midwives are recognised as experts in supporting women during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. We believe midwifery fosters the belief that childbirth is a normal physiological experience to be nurtured and respected.

What you'll learn

As a midwife you will be recognised as an expert in supporting and advising women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and post-partum care. This course offers you the opportunity to develop clinical midwifery practice in a variety of healthcare settings and through simulated practice using our state of the art facilities. You will critically explore the provision of maternity services embracing the challenges of prioritising compassion, professionalism and trust.

You will be supported by a team of midwife lecturers who have expertise in both clinical practice and current research.
Midwives are autonomous practitioners who practice in a multi-disciplinary care setting. Midwifery is a very distinct independent health profession which possesses its own knowledge skills and competencies. Midwifery care holistically encompasses the unique experience of each individual woman throughout their journey.

The study of midwifery will teach you the theory of being a midwife through a blended learning approach including lectures, tutorials, online self-directed learning and workshops. You will prepare for your placements in our simulated clinical environment prior to your practice placements across South-East Scotland. Notable midwifery skills include:

• communication skills
• breast feeding
• normal labour and birth
• initial consultation and history taking
• medicines management

On placement you’ll relate theory to real life practice supported by a midwife mentor specifically trained to support you and assess your achievement.

The experience you gain will enable you to become a conscientious midwife and contribute positively to advancing midwifery practice. You’ll become knowledgeable and skilled in the care of pregnant women, their babies and families and graduate ready to go straight into work.

You’ll also be eligible to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This qualification means that you’ve been assessed to be a safe and competent midwife with the necessary understanding and abilities.
What you'll study

Year 1

• Professional midwifery practice
• Ante-natal and post-natal midwifery care
• The science of midwifery
• Evaluating the evidence base for normal labour and birth

Careers

On successful completion of the course, you will be well equipped for your role as a Registered Midwife. This will also be supported by continuous professional development/ revalidation throughout your career based on the NMC Code (2015). The principles of the Code are to:
• Promote professionalism and trust
• Prioritise people
• Practice effectively
• Preserve safety

These principles are firmly embedded in our programme and continued application of these principles will enable future career opportunities including, midwifery research, advanced practice or specialist roles and education

All students enrolling on this course will already possess a relevant professional qualification (eg. medical doctor, physiotherapist, podiatry). It is anticipated that most students on this programme will be employed or will be seeking employment within the National Health Service, Social, voluntary sectors, or in independent practice. The programme therefore has significant clinical and vocational relevance. The specialist knowledge and postgraduate level skills gained will enhance students’ opportunities to progress in their careers.

We have also ensured that the content of the programme meets the postgraduate education requirements and levels of competencies for accreditation, set out by key professional bodies: 1). Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sport and Exercise Medicine (Physios in Sport UK) and 2). International Federation of Sports Physiotherapists.

Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) statistics provided by the University Careers Service for the last three years show that a significant cohort of students graduating from Ulster with sport and exercise related undergraduate awards go on to full-time employment (statistics are available on request). It is anticipated that this programme will allow the Faculty and the USA to continue its excellent track record of producing multi-skilled graduates who are attractive to a range of employers. This will be achieved in conjunction with the Career Development Centre at the University, with all students encouraged to avail of the relevant employability training and support.

This programme addresses the great shortage of skilled radio frequency (RF) and microwave engineers, and the growing demand for conceptually new wireless systems.

You will learn about a range of modern theories and techniques, accompanied by topics on wireless frequencies and sizes of RF and microwave devices.

This ranges from the lowest frequencies used in radio frequency identification (RFID) systems through to systems used at mm wave frequencies that can have applications in satellite communication systems and fifth generation wireless communication systems.

Theoretical concepts established in lectures are complemented by practical implementation in laboratory sessions, with direct experience of industry-standard computer-aided design (CAD) software.

Read about the experience of a previous student on this course, Uche Chukwumerije.

Programme structure

This programme is studied full-time over one academic year and part-time students must study at least two taught technical modules per academic year. It consists of eight taught modules and a project.

Example module listing

The following modules are indicative, reflecting the information available at the time of publication. Please note that not all modules described are compulsory and may be subject to teaching availability and/or student demand.

Academic support

We provide solid academic support through the taught modules and into the project period. You will be assigned a personal tutor with whom you can discuss both academic and general issues related to the programme.

When you move into the project phase of the programme, you will be assigned a project supervisor who you will meet, usually on a weekly basis, to discuss the progress of your project.

The individual taught modules also feature strong academic support, usually through a tutorial programme. All of the RF and microwave modules have tutorial sheets to support the lectures.

Although completing the tutorials is not part of the formal assessment, you have the option of using the tutorials to receive individual feedback on your progress in the modules.

Facilities and equipment

The combined facilities of the RF teaching laboratories and the Advanced Technology Institute provide MSc students with an exceptionally wide range of modern fabrication and measurement equipment.

Furthermore a wide variety of RF test and measurement facilities are available through Surrey Space Centre and the 5G Innovation Centre, which also involve work in the RF and microwave engineering domain.

Equipment includes access to CAD design tools, anechoic chamber, spectrum analysers, network analysers, wideband channel sounder, circuit etching and circuit testing.

Industrial and overseas links

The 5G Innovation Centre and Advanced Technology Institute within the Department have a range of active links with industry, both in the UK and overseas. During the past few years we have had students taking the MSc through the part-time route and completing their projects in industry.

Examples of industrial projects range from looking at new microwave measurement techniques at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), to antenna design and construction at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).

We have also sent students overseas to complete their projects, funded through the Erasmus scheme, which is a European programme that provides full financial support for students completing their project work at one of our partner universities in mainland Europe.

Students taking advantage of this opportunity not only enhance their CVs with a European perspective, but also produce excellent project dissertations.

Technical characteristics of the pathway

This programme in Microwave Engineering and Wireless Subsystem Designrf and microwavengineering provides detailed in-depth knowledge of theory and techniques applicable to radio frequency (RF) and microwave engineering.

The programme includes core modules in both RF and microwave covering all ranges of wireless frequencies and a number of application devices including radio frequency identification (RFID), broadcasting, satellite links, microwave ovens, printed and integrated microwave circuits.

Additional optional modules enable the student to apply the use of RF and microwave in subsystem design for either mobile communications, satellite communications, nanotechnology or for integration with optical communications.

The teaching material and projects are closely related to the research being carried out in the Department’s Advanced Technology Institute and the Institute for Communication Systems.

Global opportunities

We often give our students the opportunity to acquire international experience during their degrees by taking advantage of our exchange agreements with overseas universities.

In addition to the hugely enjoyable and satisfying experience, time spent abroad adds a distinctive element to your CV.
