Midwifery European Master of Science

Course Description

The European MSc Midwifery is a project developed by five universities and funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union.

Glasgow Caledonian University, Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, Academie Verloskunde Maastricht, Zuyd University Maastricht and University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland are partners in this exciting venture.

The programme is delivered jointly by the five institutions and students registered at any one of the institutions are able to undertake modules both at their home institution and at any one of the partner institutions.

The programme aims to offer midwives the possibility of studying midwifery at an advanced level. It aims to stimulate a European exchange of theory and practice and to consider the contents of the study course from a European perspective. The coordination of the European MSc Midwifery is being carried out by Glasgow Caledonian University which has extensive experience running MSc Midwifery programmes.


The programme offers midwives the chance to gain internationally accepted and accredited additional skills. These will qualify them for leadership positions in midwifery research, education and practice. This programme offers midwives opportunities to strengthen personal professional competencies and to undertake further study in such areas as clinical research, modern management methods and recent teaching and learning strategies.

Students can select modules which are offered by any of the partner institutions.

The programme lasts for two years when undertaken on a full time basis and can be prolonged up to five years when on part time. Recognition of prior learning is possible but does not accrue an actual mark only credits. Please have a closer look at the regulation of those universities which admit students (Hannover, Glasgow).

Entry Requirements

Entry requirements for the European MSc in Midwifery are a completed midwifery education, an academic degree at least at Bachelor level and certified knowledge of English. Midwives who have no academic degree may be able to complete a BSc degree at Glasgow Caledonian University prior to undertaking the MSc. This is possible to be done through a flexible distance-study course with a reduced number of modules being taken due to the recognition of prior learning. Admission procedures comply with each university’s policy on admission.
