Anglia Ruskin University

Women's and Children's Health

This course focuses on the health of women and children. During their 'core' modules, students will be encouraged to explore individual health issues, as well as exploring the global legislation that impacts on women's and children's health, and understanding how they can implement and influence policy change. The option modules will allow the student to tailor their learning to their individual practice; whether caring for the critically unwell women, doing a physical assessment of a new-born infant (NIPE), understanding the global impact of responsive parenting or as an effective leader or manager of a service.

Entry requirements

A UK Honours degree (or equivalent). Applicants whose 1st language is not English will be expected to demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 with no element lower than 6.5 (academic level) or equivalent English language qualification, as recognised by Anglia Ruskin University. Applicants should have recent experience (within the last 2 years) of working in a field related to women's or children's health. Applicants who hold an academic or professional qualification approved by senate (or a committee acting on its behalf) as equivalent in breadth and depth to a UK Honours degree will be considered. Non-graduates with extensive relevant practical and continuing professional development experience will be considered on an individual basis.
