Maternal and Child Health/Midwifery Postgraduate research degrees PhD/MPhil course Overview

At the Centre for Maternal and Child Health we conduct high quality research. Our focus is to improve the health and care of women, children, families and communities. Much of our research in Midwifery has been rated as world-leading or internationally excellent. Your work will be connected with one of our three research groups:

Recent doctorates have explored topics such as:

The Department of Midwifery and Radiography has a vibrant international research environment which is driven by a diverse mix of people from backgrounds including midwifery, psychology and anthropology.

Study for an MPhil/PhD

Doctoral level study involves independent academic research, supported by supervisors, that makes an original contribution to knowledge within the discipline.

There are two main routes to doctoral-level research degrees (PhD) within the School of Health & Psychological Sciences .

The main approach - MPhil/PhD by major thesis - centres on conducting original research and presenting this in a thesis of around 70,000 words (and no longer than 100,000 words).

An alternative route to doctoral qualification is PhD by publication. This involves the candidate either linking together a coherent body of previously conducted research papers with a critical commentary (PhD by prior publication), or preparing and submitting a series of papers for peer reviewed publication during the period of registration (PhD by prospective publication).

Further details of these two routes are given below:

MPhil/PhD by major thesis

The standard route involves the accepted candidate pursuing a research project under the guidance of their supervisors over a period of 3 years (full-time) or 4-6 years (part-time).

MPhil and PhD study will commonly involve a structured programme of research activity. Comprising systematic literature review, pilot or developmental study, and main study phases.

PhD by publication

Prior publication : Candidates who have already published a series of significant research papers submit these together with an accompanying analytical commentary. This body of work must be principally the candidate's own work.

The number and range of publications must be sufficient to demonstrate that the work forms a coherent contribution to knowledge or scholarship within the particular field. This typically involves around six papers.

Prospective publication: Candidates publish several (generally around four to six papers, dependent on their depth, quality, significance and impact) significant research papers addressing various aspects of their research topic during their period of PhD registration.

For full details about the City PhD programme structure, please see the Guide for Research Students .


Entry requirements vary by subject area. Applicants should approach academic staff working in their area of interest to discuss their proposal ahead of submitting an application. Applicants should normally hold an upper second-class honours degree or the equivalent from an international institution.

Where the applicant's academic profile shows no evidence of training in research methods, it is recommended that students first complete a Master’s programme. This is to prepare them for MPhil/PhD studies. Substantial employment or research experience may be considered for some subject areas alongside or in place of academic qualifications.

English requirements

For applicants whose first language is not English, an IELTS score of at least 7 (with a minimum of 7.0 in writing) is required.

For more information see our main entry requirements page.

Visa requirements

If you are not from the European Economic Area/Switzerland and you are coming to study in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa or entry clearance to come to the UK to study.

The way that you apply may vary depending on the length of your course. There are different rules for:

For more information see our main Visa page .

Fees and funding

Full-time UK: £4,770 per year

Part-time UK: £2,385 per year

Full-time Overseas/EU: £13,270 per year

Part-time Overseas/EU: £6,900 per year

Fees for doctoral candidates are charged annually and cover registration, supervision and examination. Fees are subject to review each year and may vary during your period of registration.

Support for PhD study

Prospective students are encouraged to explore doctoral Grants and funding opportunities such as:

Our bursaries are non-repayable sums of money granted by the University, usually based on need.

Our loans are repayable sums of money granted by the University or other body.

Our scholarships are when the University pays towards your Study fees. You may also be eligible for further funding.

Postgraduate Doctoral Loans

The Government has introduced a new Postgraduate Doctoral Loans scheme which can provide a loan of up to £25,000.

This will be over three years to support study for a doctoral degree.

A Postgraduate Doctoral Loan can help with course fees and living costs while you study. It can be used alongside any other forms of support you may be able to receive.

For more information, please see our Postgraduate Doctoral Loans page .

Additional expenses

Some of our degrees may involve additional expenses which are not covered by your tuition fees.  Find out more about additional expenses .

Funding for Research Projects

Harp - HARP is a doctoral training programme for health professionals, offering full time salary and consumables for three years.  It is a partnership of QMUL and City supported by Social Action for Health and funded by the Wellcome Trust, Barts Charity, the Trustees of the Medical College of St Bartholomew’s Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust and East London Foundation Trust.

Barts Charity doctoral fellowships for nurses, midwives and AHPs - This programme supports nurses, midwives and Allied Healthcare Professionals (AHPs) to undertake clinical research to complete a PhD at City.

Academic support

City has a well-established structure and processes to support your research .


MPhil/PhD students have the opportunity to become integral members of the School of Health & Psychological Sciences' research teams based in Our Research Centres. These centre's assist and encourage students when completing their studies. A wide range of formal and informal research groups are also available to support MPhil/PhD students.

MPhil/PhD students are assigned to a team of supervisors . This usually consists of two academics who are expert in the field of the student's study.

Students meet regularly with their supervisors to review their learning needs and plan their work towards progression and completion of their research studies. Full time students are required to meet with their supervisors at least twice a term. Part-time students will meet with supervisors at least once a term.

Here notes will be recorded notes from these meetings and other indicators of progress on the web-based system, Research And Progress (RAP) .

Students' progress is monitored regularly and supported by an annual review. They may have the opportunity to discuss their research design and written work with a research advisor from outside their supervision team. They also have access to ongoing support from Senior Tutors for Research.

All students working towards a PhD initially register for MPhil studies.

When the student's study has sufficiently developed to demonstrate that it is of doctoral standard then the student may apply to be upgraded to PhD student status. This involves an oral examination. Upgrading normally occurs between 12 and 18 months for full time study and between 24 and 30 months for part time study.

Research students are also supported by student representatives who meet regularly with the student-staff liaison committee. Here they can respond to any student concerns that cannot be addressed by the supervision team.

All MPhil/PhD students can access a wide range of MSc modules and other training programmes across City, normally without charge. Attendance at these programmes is discussed with and, if appropriate, approved by the student's supervision team.

A number of workshops, seminars and retreats are organised specifically for research degrees students across the School and within particular areas. Students are also invited to attend the research seminars that are organised for academic staff.

Institution-wide research related activities can also contribute to your development as a researcher. An annual programme of research and enterprise development activities is kept under review and updated in response to feedback from research students and academic and research staff.

The City Doctoral College can provide more information about graduate degrees.

How to apply

In the first, instance, we recommend that you visit the relevant School and Research Centre. Here you can read about our research and establish areas of specific staff interest. This will enable you to identify whether the School of Health & Psychological Sciences at City is the best place for your study.

Following this you need to submit a formal online application with a curriculum vitae and a 1-2 page proposal of study. This should include:

Background and rationale including other work in the area leading up to the PhD study.

Proposed methodology such as aims, design, participant groups, measures, analysis.

Potential outcomes of the research in terms of academic outputs (papers and presentations) and real-world impact (e.g., its potential usefulness for health services care providers, policymakers etc.).

Students in the University of Worcester geogarden on an Autumn day

Midwifery MPhil/PhD

We welcome applications to undertake research towards mphil and phd degrees in midwifery..

Research at Worcester has grown significantly in the last 10 years as the University itself has expanded. As a research student you will join a vibrant student community in our Research School and become part of our dynamic research environment.

Three Counties School of Nursing and Midwifery

The Three Counties School of Nursing and Midwifery has a strong mix of academics with a high degree of professional and personal experience, enabling you to get the most out of your programme. Our staff have expertise in Clinical Midwifery Skills, supervision of midwives and governance issues, support of students within a diverse care settings, normality, high risk situations, and regulation.

What qualifications will you need?

Entry qualifications.

First or Upper Second Class Honours Degree or an approved equivalent award

International applicants

International applicants will be required to demonstrate that they have the appropriate level of written and spoken English.

For MPhil/PhD this is an IELTS score of 6.5 with a minimum score of 6.0 in every component.

What will you study?

Phd year by year.

After receiving your application, we try to establish if we have the necessary expertise to supervise your project and we begin to form a supervisory team for you. This will normally consist of a Director of Studies (DoS), who will be your lead supervisor, and at least one other supervisor, who will offer you additional support and guidance throughout your studies. If, following a successful interview, you are offered a place as a full-time student, your programme of study will look something like this:

You will have submitted a draft research outline with your application. In your first year, you will be working towards submitting a more complete research proposal. You will be aided in your research by meeting with your supervisory team to discuss your progress. You will also be supported through your first year by engaging with a series of four modules:

At the end of each year, beginning with your first year, you will reflect on and formally review your progress with your supervisory team and MPhil/PhD Course Leader. We call this annual meeting an Annual Progress Review (APR).

Second year

In your second year, you will be collecting data and working on your research project under the supervision of your supervisors through regular meetings. You may at this point have research papers ready to publish and you may wish to attend conferences to present your research to other experts in your field. You will be able to apply to our Research Student Support Scheme for some funding for this purpose. Students normally undergo Transfer from MPhil to PhD towards the end of their second year. This will be part of your Annual Progress Review for this year.

Third and fourth year

In your third and fourth year, you will be writing up your thesis and preparing for your viva voce examination. This is an oral exam with two examiners and a chair. You can also request that your supervisor be present at the exam. The exam will take place after you have submitted your final thesis. After the exam, it is not unusual for the examiners to ask that some amendments be made to your thesis before the final award is confirmed and you will have additional time to do this. It is possible to complete the course in three years, but we have found that the majority of students do take four years to complete the course. At the end of each year of your registration, you will go through an Annual Progress Review.

Part time students follow the same structure as full-time students but normally complete the PhD over a period of five to six years. Part-time students take two modules in each of their first two years, and will normally Transfer to PhD in their fourth year.

How will you be taught?

Benefit from a professional and challenging relationship with your supervisory team, drawn from experienced academics working at the forefront of their disciplines.

Supervision areas

Access to the University of Worcester’s virtual resources and its state-of-the-art library facilities. The Midwifery team at Worcester have an excellent range of resources available to support your learning and your research project. The School of Nursing and Midwifery has a state-of-the-art clinical skills and simulation centre that is staffed by three dedicated clinical skills technicians. Simulation suites include: hospital, therapy and home environments that are designed to mimic real life settings so that students can practice in realistic healthcare surroundings. The simulation suites are fitted with video recording equipment which is controlled from a central control room.

Where could it take you?

All students engage with our Researcher Development Programme (RDP). The RDP aims to develop and enhance the skills, both generic and specific, that you will need to complete your research degree but also to become an effective researcher. The RDP is organised around thematic clusters, consisting of modules, and workshops, delivered face-to-face by subject specialists from across the University and the dedicated Researcher Development Team, or online through our virtual learning environment.

As part of the RDP, you will complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Research Methods (PG Cert). All students must complete the PG Cert in order to progress on their MPhil/PhD Programme. The PG Cert is strongly focused on developing your programme of research, starting from establishing your development needs, and preparing you for the planning and subsequent delivery of your programme of research.

Full-time students will complete the PG Cert in 12 months and part-time students in 24 months.
