There are a suite of post graduate certificates related to this MSci that may be of interest to nursing colleagues, as well as midwives.
The program offers a flexible learning approach that aims to:
- Provide students with a rigorous framework for the development and synthesis of critical knowledge and skills to optimise the childbirth experience for women and their families.
