Being a Midwife is a highly rewarding role as you’ll be responsible for ensuring both a safe and positive environment in all childbirth situations. Our programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge, clinical skills and critical and reflective thinking required to provide excellent care for women and newborn babies. You will develop into an independent learner through a programme of study which combines classroom-based, directed and self-directed learning with full engagement in clinical care, under supervision, to women during their childbirth experience.
In the first year, you will develop the foundation for a comprehensive understanding of the physiological, psychological, social, and public health dimensions of normal pregnancy and childbirth. You will gain insight into the importance of communication for effective caring and professional relationships and begin to explore research evidence as the basis for providing optimal care. This initial foundation will be built on as the course progresses and knowledge is developed about conditions that may complicate pregnancy, the impact of these on women, babies, and other family members and the skills and multidisciplinary teamwork required to manage them effectively. The final part of the programme will prepare you for assuming full responsibility as a qualified midwife.
This is a Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) approved programme. Students who successfully complete the programme may apply for NMC midwifery registration.
Student midwives are eligible to receive an annual grant of at least £5,000 to help cover their living costs. Additional financial grants are also available for eligible students. More information and the full eligibility criteria can be found within the "Careers in Health and Social Care" section of the government website.
