Content

As a midwife you will be recognised as an expert in supporting and advising women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and post-partum care. This course offers you the opportunity to develop clinical midwifery practice in a variety of healthcare settings and through simulated practice using our state of the art facilities. You will critically explore the provision of maternity services embracing the challenges of prioritising compassion, professionalism and trust.

You will be supported by a team of midwife lecturers who have expertise in both clinical practice and current research.

Midwives are autonomous practitioners who practice in a multi-disciplinary care setting. Midwifery is a very distinct independent health profession which possesses its own knowledge skills and competencies. Midwifery care holistically encompasses the unique experience of each individual woman throughout their journey.

You must provide evidence of completion of general education of 12 years as part of the interview process. You may also be considered with other academic, vocational or professional qualifications deemed to be equivalent.

Although not essential, we do advise students to gain paid or voluntary work within the health and/or social care sector before commencement onto the programme.
