Applying for the European Master of Science in Midwifery is no longer possible

The programme will expire at the end of the accreditation period in 2024. For this reason no new cohort has started from 2022 onwards. It is no longer possible to apply.
Participation in individual modules as a guest student is still possible.
We are working on developing a concept for a new Master’s programme, which may then be in German - if it comes into being. No further information can currently be given.
