There are few more rewarding careers than supporting mother and child through pregnancy, childbirth and post-partum care. Midwives work in partnership with expectant mothers to promote good health in mother and baby through education, informed decision-making and empowerment, as well as clinical support.
The BSc Midwifery course at UWS will give you the knowledge, skills, practical experience and confidence to become a professional midwife.
Our course is 50% work-based learning, so you’ll spend a significant amount of time putting what you learn in lectures into practice in a real-life clinical environment.
The course carries UNICEF’s UK Baby Friendly Initiative accreditation for ensuring midwifery students are equipped with knowledge and skills to advise breastfeeding mothers.
