Whilst this award is for Registered Midwives, the course is offered in parallel with the MSc in Nursing so that core concepts can be shared. There are clusters of modules that are midwifery specific; whilst others are studied with nurses yet have specific clinical competencies which relate to midwifery. The focus is on developing clinical skills (competencies) and theoretical understanding. The first stage of 60 credits may be studied as an identified specialist cluster, i.e.: PGCert in Advanced Clinical Practice PGCert in Midwifery Practice PGCert in Midwifery PGCert in Sexual Health PGCert in Women’s Health (available to nurses) Students completing a further 60 credits are eligible for the award of PGDip in Advanced Clinical Practice PGDip in Midwifery PGDip in Diagnostic Hysteroscopy and Therapeutic Practices PGDip in Sexual Health and students completing the dissertation for a further 60 credits, on a topic related to their area of practice, will be eligible for the award of MSc.
