We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Midwifery teach postgraduates the essential principles and techniques for delivering babies, as well as how to care for the mother during each stage of the birth cycle. Midwifery courses are available as an MSc, a PGDip and a PGCert.
Related subjects include Women’s Health and Infant Health. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject such as Nursing, Midwifery or Medicine.
Courses in this field often take an interdisciplinary approach, training you to become an expert caregiver for pregnant women and their families, while building your clinical expertise in a variety of healthcare settings. As well as training in evidence-based practice, you will also explore the provision of maternity services and their social and economic importance.
Placements are usually a key component of most programmes, and may include interaction with patients in settings such as hospitals and community groups. You will learn to provide advice on topics such as breastfeeding, normal labour and birth, and the relationship between pregnancy and various health conditions.
As well as hospitals and health centres, midwives may work within social services to give home visits, support community centres with various education programmes, or provide administrative assistance on behalf of charities.
