Our three-year Midwifery (BMidwif) course takes a contemporary, innovative and woman-focused approach that will help you train as a midwife.
Our curriculum, which has been running since September 2013, has been highly commended by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and other external reviewers.
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 (although professional registration requirements vary in different countries).
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;
- multidisciplinary teams 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 to service users¿ needs and future service development.
The course is taught predominantly by a team of midwifery lecturers with wide-ranging clinical experience, well-developed teaching expertise and established research skills.
Where appropriate, we also draw on the expertise of clinical specialists and other lecturers from across the Faculty.
Half of your time on this course will be spent in university-based learning, including 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. See the Midwifery programme information booklet (PDF, 147KB) for further information.
The fees for entry in 2016 will be paid in full by the NHS for home/EU students. The course is not open to international students. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
An initial set of uniforms for clinical practice (choice of dresses or tunics and trousers) will be supplied by the University.
Loans are normally reduced for midwifery students, as they receive the NHS bursary.
