Course description

This is a contemporary and innovative course, underpinned by a woman-focused approach. Our curriculum, which incorporates the very latest thinking and discoveries, has been highly commended (among others) by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and is designed to develop you into a first-class midwife. At the end of your three-year course, as a sought-after graduate, you will be able to register with NMC and practice midwifery anywhere in the UK and in many other parts of the world.

You will be taught by some of the country's leading midwifery lecturers, researchers, clinicians, and experts from across the wider faculty.

Your study time will be divided equally between academic and practice-based learning. You will spend half of your time in lectures, tutorials and seminars, or engaging in enquiry-based group work, reading and on-line activities. The rest of your time will be dedicated to learning in practice, working alongside midwives and other professionals.

Each year comprises 45 weeks of study (37.5 hours per week) and seven weeks holiday. You can download the Midwifery programme  (PDF) for further course information.

'It has been an amazing experience and I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to have been a University of Manchester student. I'll wear my badge with pride! Kindness, empathy, intuition and instinct - all attributes I have been shown throughout my time at Manchester, both at university and in clinical placement.' (Rebecca Ross, BMidwif graduate)
