Midwifery

Prepare to bring new life safely into the world. Learn in some of the best facilities for health, social care and medicine students in the country, and graduate with a degree accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
You’ll explore the theory behind this invaluable role on campus, then apply your skills to real challenges and work towards managing a caseload of women and birthing people. As a qualified midwife, you might work in hospitals, the community, birth centres, or independent practice. Or perhaps you’ll use your skills to carry out research and move the field forward.

Our facilities include our Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre, where we’ll hone your professional skills and hands-on experience through simulated learning.

With plenty of time on placement, you’ll transition from student to qualified midwife confidently.

Experience a strong sense of community within the midwifery programme, valued by women, birthing people and their families.
