Course description

From September 2013 we have been running our new contemporary curriculum which has been highly commended by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and other external reviewers for its innovative design and woman-centred approach.

Successful graduates can register as a midwife with the NMC and will be eligible to practice as a midwife anywhere in the UK and in many other parts of the world.

The course is underpinned by a commitment to:

  • The integration of theory and practice
  • High standards of clinical competence
  • Partnership working with women
  • Keeping birth normal
  • Midwifery support for women with complex needs
  • Multi-disciplinary team working to benefit midwifery clients
  • The appreciation of diversity and the principles of equity
  • Tackling health inequalities through effective public health interventions
  • Evidence-based midwifery practice and developing new knowledge through research
  • Improving service provision through effective professional leadership
  • Being responsive service users needs and future service development
The course is taught predominantly by a team of midwifery lecturers with wide ranging experience including up-to-date clinical midwifery practice, well developed teaching expertise and established research skills. Where appropriate, we also draw on the expertise of clinical specialists and other lecturers such as from the Faculty of Life Sciences .

50% of your time on this course will be spent in university-based learning: lectures, reading, tutorials, seminars, enquiry-based group work and online activities. The other 50% of your time will be spent learning in practice, working alongside midwives and other professionals.
