Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Gain the skills and experience to launch a rewarding and valued career as a midwife with our prestigious, internationally recognised Midwifery degree course.

You will develop the clinical and interpersonal expertise to ensure a woman’s physical and emotional well-being during pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood.

You will also learn to analyse, evaluate, and critique research studies to support reflective and evidence-based study and practice.

Half of your teaching takes place in the university and the other half in practice placements, working with midwives in community-based teams, midwifery-led birth centres and hospital maternity units.

We have excellent links with Welsh health boards, so you will have access to a wide range of placement settings across south west Wales, with the nearest maternity hospital right next-door to our Singleton Park campus on the edge of the beautiful Gower Peninsula.

MIDWIFERY CAREERS

On graduation, you will be eligible to apply for Registered Midwife status with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and to register as a midwife for work in EU and EEA.

Our Midwifery qualification is highly valued internationally, giving you the potential to develop your career abroad in countries including Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.

As your career progresses, you could have opportunities to move into specialist roles in areas such as teenage pregnancy, substance misuse, breastfeeding, sexual health, high-risk care, antenatal education, antenatal screening, and homebirth. You could also become involved in education, research, or management roles.
