Subject

Midwifery

Be part of a supportive midwifery community. We'll help you to develop your knowledge, practical, interpersonal and leadership skills on your journey to become a midwife.

This course is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Upon successful completion of the course, you'll be eligible to register with the NMC as a newly qualified midwife.

You'll develop your knowledge, practical, interpersonal and leadership skills while working closely with women and their families - through all the stages of pregnancy, birth and beyond.

Clinical placements will support you in developing your midwifery skills in practice. You'll follow a number of women's pregnancy journeys and provide continuity of care through your case-holding experience.

You will be taught by our expert staff who have been recognised both locally and internationally for their teaching excellence. Our teaching is research-led and, as an established regional provider of midwifery education, we work in partnership with four diverse NHS Trusts. This offers you a wealth of different clinical learning experiences across the maternity services.

Modules

During your first year, you'll develop a strong understanding of the professional role of the midwife in practice, along with the skills needed to succeed in the profession. You'll experience placements in year one, with a focus on normal childbirth.

In your second year you'll begin exploring the different ways in which pregnancy and childbirth can change people’s lives. The importance of research and evidence-based care is also explored.

In your final year, you'll learn how to care for individuals with more complex health and social needs. You'll also develop the skills needed for effective management and leadership, in preparation for your future midwifery career.

For the latest information, please visit our course webpage.

Assessment methods

You'll be assessed by a variety of methods including: exams, essays, clinical exams and debates.
