Course summary

Overview

The postgraduate Midwifery programme adopts a holistic approach to developing experienced registered midwives into skilled leaders of the profession.

The programme is designed to develop the skills in complex reasoning, critical thinking and analysis required to undertake these roles. The awards offer you the opportunity to apply knowledge to a range of clinical and professional situations through reflection and practice experience, supported by an experienced mentor. Learning and teaching is designed to equip you with skills in using a range of information, data, tools and techniques to improve the quality of patient care and health outcomes as well as demonstrate impact and value.

The MSc in Midwifery and its nested awards are designed to address current and future demands of midwifery practice services, including the recommendations from Midwifery 2020 (DoH 2010). The awards recognise the changing clinical environment and allow you to develop key advanced skills or those associated with service delivery and enhancement within the current social and economic climate.

Your programme of study and the collection of modules you may choose to study will contextualise your learning. Modules such as the research or work based project modules, for example, enable you to shape your own focus of study within the modules aims and learning outcomes by learning the principles being taught and applying them to your own professional/employment area.

There are a number of approaches to the manner in which modules are delivered and these include block attendance, study day attendance, distance learning and blended learning using face to face and on-line activities/ materials. When devising your study plan with your academic supervisor you will be informed regarding which delivery methods are utilised for which module and in which semester your chosen modules are being delivered.

The programme was written specifically for registered midwives, but shares modules throughout the Faculty of Health Studies and a multi-professional approach is used in teaching and learning.

Learning and assessment

Whilst following this programme of study you will engage with learning through a range of teaching methods. These methods will be dependent on modules studied, however student centred approaches to learning are a feature of the modules and you will be expected to take responsibility for your learning as you develop your academic skills.

The aims of the teaching and learning strategies have been designed so that you will be given the opportunity to develop theoretical and experiential understanding, advance your knowledge and critical thinking with the assistance of research informed teaching, and to develop a range of skills appropriate to your professional field. This may include work based learning with competencies undertaken in your organisation or with an additional clinical area.

The Midwifery modules and awards nested within the framework offer you the capacity to acknowledge and build upon the knowledge and skills you may have acquired through previous learning experiences including those in the work place.

Career support

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies.
