Course summary

Prepare for a challenging and rewarding professional career as a midwife.

At York, we focus on combining the art and science of care. This course will equip you to be a safe, clinically competent, reflective practitioner and leader within contemporary midwifery, maternity, and healthcare.

Alongside developing your understanding of the dynamic applied anatomy and physiology of pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period, you’ll gain the interpersonal skills you need to work with women, families and colleagues and provide compassionate care in a variety of social and cultural contexts.

Through a range of academic and practical modules you will gain skills and knowledge to enable you to provide holistic, family-centred care. We keep our cohorts small, meaning you’ll have all the support you need to progress through your course.

By the time you graduate, you’ll be ready to become a leader in contemporary midwifery.

Assessment and feedback

We use a diverse range of assessment methods to demonstrate your learning outcomes. These may include exams, essays, presentations, objective simulated clinical examinations and use of the virtual learning environment (VLE).

You’ll submit summative work, which counts towards your final degree score, and formative work, which doesn’t count towards your final grade but gives you the chance to practice techniques and receive valuable feedback. We’ll provide detailed feedback on the work you submit, supporting you as you improve and refine your work.

In your final year, you will write a substantive written piece to showcase your depth of knowledge and understanding in a chosen midwifery related topic.
