Prepare to bring new life safely into the world on the midwifery degree at Edge Hill University. 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.

On this page you’ll find 360 tours of our facilities, videos and features to give you an insight into what it’s like to study Midwifery at Edge Hill. 


Our innovative Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine building provides some of the best teaching and learning resources in the country for nursing and midwifery students.

The clinical skills facilities include ward simulations and operating theatres with industry-standard equipment, as well as mannequins that can simulate a wide range of symptoms, from pregnancy to a high temperature, to ensure your learning experience is as realistic as possible.

Edge Hill University has excellent relationships with NHS hospital and community trusts, enabling us to offer practice-based learning opportunities in a variety of care contexts, with placements at more than 600 locations across Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire.
