Midwives offer care and support to pregnant women, their partners and their families. They provide care throughout the pregnancy continuum which includes antenatal, intra partum and post partum care. On successful completion of this degree you will be eligible to register as a midwife on the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Professional Register.
A key component of the course is problem-based learning (PBL) where you will be actively involved in the learning process through problem solving, investigation, team work and self directed learning. These skills are also developed through the small caseload experience within the course.
We are a UNICEF Baby Friendly University. This ensures all our midwifery graduates have excellent knowledge and skills in supporting mothers to breastfeed their babies. Our students achieved the highest marks of any UK university within the Baby Friendly accreditation assessment in 2015.
This course will enable you to meet the requirements for registration on the midwives part of the NMC Professional Register.
It is underpinned by national policy and will provide a broad, balanced, coherent and diverse experience of midwifery practice. Each year consists of a combination of theory and practice based modules. You will be expected to maintain a portfolio of personal and professional development (PDP). This course also includes assessment of clinical skills and medicines management.
The 'Practice' modules prepare you to achieve the clinical competencies throughout each year in order to progress towards fulfilling the role of accountable, autonomous practitioner at the point of registration. You will progress from first year as novice to accountable practitioner at the end of year 3.

Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
