About MSc Midwifery Studies, Maternal and Newborn Health at University of Nottingham

The course aims to enable students to develop, deliver and direct high quality midwifery services within the context of the national and international drive towards improving maternity/health outcomes for the childbearing woman and her family. 

You will study in depth the art and science of midwifery, evidence informed midwifery practice, research skills and methodology and the ethical, political, legal, economic, multi-professional and global context in which contemporary midwifery is practised. 

The course aims to equip midwives and maternity nurses with the knowledge and skills required to lead practice change, follow a career in research and/or higher education, or work at senior and strategic levels in today's midwifery and healthcare services. To achieve this, the Division of Midwifery offers a learning environment that facilitates the development of reflective, analytical and evidence-based critical thinking to challenge existing midwifery practice, challenge maternity service provision and lead and manage change. 

The School of Health Sciences promotes opportunities for developing interprofessional working and learning with colleagues and students across all three divisions. Students on this course will study six core modules and a dissertation module.
