Accrediting organisations

The Nursing and Midwifery Council  (NMC) is the UK regulator for midwifery. Its primary purpose is to protect the public by ensuring high standards of professional practice.

It maintains a register of qualified nurses and midwives eligible to practice in the UK and sets national standards for their education, training and conduct.

Our midwifery curriculum was designed in consultation with past and current students, local service users and employers to meet all relevant NMC standards. The course was approved and commended by the NMC and other external reviewers in March 2022.
