Entry Requirements

This course is aimed at graduate midwives who are NMC registered. Non-graduate midwives seeking similar opportunities will be able to study on the existing BSc (Hons) Enhanced Professional Practice.

Requirements regarding clinical experience will be individual; however, most midwives would expect to consolidate their practice as a newly qualified midwife before seeking further education opportunities.

Admission to study, for most applicants, will be based on agreement from your employer in relation to funding or study leave.

The College will also consider you if you choose to self-fund and undertake studies in their own time.
