European Master of Science in Midwifery Master européen en Sciences Sages-Femmes
120 credits ECTS are required to achieve this programme. Each credit represents a workload of around 30 hours. For example, one 7.5 credits ECTS module, requires between 15 and 20 hours of work per week for 10 weeks. Students will be assessed individually with the credit required being determined at the start of the programme.
The required amount of ECTS may be reduced, based on recognition of prior learning (e.g a degree based on a 4-year Bachelor programme in Midwifery or post-graduate continuing education credited in ECTS). A request for recognition of prior learning can be done at the registering university.
The online programme allows students to organise their study with much autonomy and according to their needs and diverse responsabilities. Nevertheless, weekly skype sessions with fellow students or lecturers are necessary, as the pedagogic approach largely relies on a collaborative teamwork.
