Undergraduate 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 placed in the top 3 in the UK Overall (Guardian Good University Guide 2024 – Midwifery), approved 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.

Got questions? You may find the answer in our Nursing and midwifery placement FAQs.

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

Transition from student to qualified midwife confidently. 100% of our midwifery students are employed or in further study 15 months after graduation (Graduate Outcomes data released 2023 from 2020/21 graduates).

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