Course Description

About This Course

Is there anything more amazing than the miracle of life? The first heartbeat. The first gasp for air. The first cry. The physically and emotionally exhausting rollercoaster that parents go through.

Train to be a Midwife, and you’ll be playing a central role in one of the most amazing, and sometimes challenging, journeys in any family’s life. One day you could be celebrating a pregnancy; another you could find yourself consoling a family for the loss of one. It’s a completely unique career that comes loaded with responsibility – and rewards.


Balanced between theoretical study and placement-based practice, our Midwifery degree will equip you with all the skills, knowledge and leadership qualities you need to excel as a midwife. You’ll graduate ready to help mothers navigate their pregnancies as their lead practitioner in all normal midwifery care, and able to manage and coordinate more complex care for those in difficult circumstances.

A midwife needs be able to assess every case then make the right judgement. Throughout the course, you’ll study the latest research underpinning current midwifery practices, and develop both your critical analysis and ability to evaluate evidence. You’ll then consolidate your learning by putting it into practice while on placement.

Clinical placements are undertaken regularly during the course and cover every aspect of midwifery practice. You’ll work with professionals from multiple professional disciplines, gaining unique insights into the practices and perspectives of healthcare providers across the board.

Our degree will also help you to develop in-depth knowledge and clinical skills related to the examination of newborns. And you’ll learn how to support new mothers emotionally and physically as they breastfeed and bond with their babies.
