The courseĀ is mainly delivered online. A range of approaches are used, such as:

  • individual reading lists
  • discussion boards
  • web conferences
  • web based activities and quizzes
  • classroom teaching
  • tutorials (only for the partial face-to-face locally delivered modules)

You will study four modules, one of which will be the core module, Introduction to Research Based Practice. This module is invaluable for midwives to apply evidence-based practice to their professional context.


The course is assessed using a variety of approaches, including:

  • essays and reports
  • online discussion activities and debates
  • quizzes
  • development of presentations
  • portfolio

We're testing a new way of showing modules on the website

This list should give you a good idea of which modules you can take, however it may change before you begin your course, and may not show all available modules.
