Course summary

Why choose this course?

This two year masters course is ideal for registered adult nurses who have already studied at degree level and wish to gain the knowledge and skills to register as midwives with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). You will study the midwifery profession and practice, research, biological science, social science, public health, law and ethics. There is an emphasis on clinical skills teaching - more than half the course focuses on developing practical abilities. We aim to ensure your clinical placements reflect the modules you study, enabling you to integrate theory and practice.

What you will study

You will be offered clinical experience within local NHS trusts and the surrounding community. We aim to co-ordinate your clinical placements to reflect the modules being studied, integrating theory and practice. The themes that run through the programme are midwifery profession and practice, research, biological science, social science, health promotion/public health, and law and ethics.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching includes academic study and clinical practice experience. You will have access to well-equipped skills laboratories and simulation suites where you can use clinical equipment and practise on mannequins and teaching models that are relevant to maternity care. There is a continuous assessment of theory and practice. This includes extended essays, examinations, reflective journal writing and projects.

After you graduate

Registered midwives can choose to develop their skills and experience in the NHS, or the independent or voluntary sectors. Midwives can elect to work clinically, teach, undertake research or even manage a complete maternity service. Extensive postgraduate study opportunities are also available at Kingston and St George's. Midwifery today is a highly attractive career with good financial rewards and excellent employment prospects in the UK and overseas. The majority of midwives work in the NHS, either in the community working alongside GPs, district nurses and social workers, or in hospital environments in partnership with obstetricians, anaesthetists and neonatologists. Others work in private maternity hospitals or practice independently. There are many practice-based roles and also management opportunities in both midwifery and general health care which can enable midwives to develop and support modern midwifery practice. Midwives may also take on consultant roles.
