The Bachelor of Midwifery (Honours) is a one-year degree for high-achieving students who have already completed the Bachelor of Midwifery or equivalent. The honours degree allows students to build upon the knowledge gained in their past degree, develop research skills that will equip them for future study at a higher degree level and work closely with an academic expert to contribute to a particular area of interest. The main focus of the degree is to produce a research thesis under supervision from experienced academic staff.
Importantly, this degree does not lead to registration as a midwife with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Completion of an Honours degree equips graduates with important skills in research, data analysis and interpretation, and project management. It is the most efficient pathway to doctoral studies. An Honours degree also provides graduates with greater knowledge of research and interpretation, which can be usefully applied in the clinical setting.
