About this course

During this program you'll undertake coursework in small, supportive groups, which facilitate more in-depth class discussions. You'll collaborate closely with your fellow students and learn from internationally respected researchers and academics who'll guide your studies and advance your skills through individual mentoring.

Research plays an important role in improving the safety and quality of care, so during your honours year you'll deepen your knowledge of midwifery practice by studying research methods and writing your concluding thesis.

Your thesis may be publishable and make a significant contribution to the field, which means your research might establish your professional reputation and act as a gateway to future jobs possibilities.

Also, if you're currently working in health, the honours year in midwifery is available part-time so you can keep up with your personal or professional responsibilities.

Graduates have gone on to fulfil significant roles in a range of different public and private healthcare services, maternity and neonatal care settings, teaching and research centres, rural and remote health clinics, and aid organisations.
