Explore Midwifery

Midwifery is one of the most rewarding careers, offering excellent employability prospects alongside a unique professional role. At its heart is the provision of expert, respectful care tailored to a woman’s individual circumstances and needs. Midwives are central to the provision of high-quality maternity care to mothers and babies across the world.

As a student here you will gain comprehensive knowledge of the craft and science of midwifery with excellent teaching and mentorship from academics and experienced clinicians who are committed to excellence in midwifery education, practice, and research.

Salford was one of the first UK universities to be awarded UNICEF Baby Friendly accreditation, and in 2015 we were reaccredited with the highest mark ever awarded. UNICEF was highly complementary of the midwifery staff and students, praising their knowledge, skill and enthusiasm.

Studying midwifery at the University of Salford, you will acquire the skills and knowledge to optimise the normal biological, psychological, social and cultural processes of childbirth and learn how to provide the safest evidence-based care for women and babies through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
