The BSc Midwifery: Registered Midwife course will gain experience of delivering care to individual women throughout the antenatal, labour and postnatal period. Our course is equally divided between academic learning and practical experience. You will study a broad range of scientific and midwifery topics and will be taught to critically evaluate the evidence-based learning and research findings underpinning practice. You will develop a responsive attitude to the needs of childbearing women and their families, reflected in your capacity to assess their needs, make judgements, and plan, implement and evaluate care. Our midwifery graduates have excellent career prospects. There are numerous employment opportunities for qualified midwives, both in the UK and internationally. Many of our graduates secure employment with their ‘home’ trust following graduation, before going on to further studies and employment. Midwives can choose to work in both community and hospital settings, and can further their careers by developing specialist expertise in a range of areas, such as family planning and managing pregnancy in women with long-term conditions. Following qualification, a midwife can elect to work in NHS trusts offering differing models of care delivery. The opportunity to develop specialist skills in maternity care is also available. The introduction of the consultant midwife enables an experienced practitioner to further utilise their knowledge, skills and considerable experience to best effect, in order to influence change and improve care for women and their families.
