     This programme is invaluable for all those who want to develop excellence, improve health outcomes for women and infants, and share good practice. Although the Midwifery award is only available to registered or licensed midwives, the MSc Maternal and Infant Health is not limited to specific professionals and the modules will be shared with a range of health and social care professionals studying our other programmes.

This programme is offered on a part-time basis and delivered through high quality online distance learning.

A number of the modules are shared with a wide multidisciplinary student body undertaking the MSc Midwifery, MSc Maternal and Infant Health, MSc Nursing and the MSc Health Studies, as well as some of our other programmes. This enhances the student experience and makes the learning more appropriate to real practice environments which are rarely unidisciplinary.

What are the aims of this programme?

We aim to provide an intellectual environment within which you are challenged to develop the knowledge and skills required to enhance your own health and social care practice as well as to advance practice in your own profession or role. The aim is also to support multidisciplinary collegiality and create a global community of scholars displaying postgraduate attributes of confidence, complexity, creativity, professionalism, autonomy and the articulation of novel perspectives to problem solving.

Who should study this course?

This programme will suit any graduate health or social care professional working within maternal and infant health who aspire to advance their own and others’ clinical practice, as well as planning for leadership roles, both formal and informal.
