Course summary

This course is subject to NMC re-validation.Midwifery is a diverse role – involving more than just delivering babies. As a qualified midwife, you will be the main contact for an expectant mother throughout pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period, supporting her family as well. So you will need to be able to recognise and respond to her physical, psychological, cultural and socio-economic needs. Midwives also play a wider role in public health within primary and secondary care settings, including sexual health promotion. This degree, spanning 45 weeks each year, prepares you for professional practice through role play and scenario-based learning, spending half your time in University and half on a placement, supported by a registered midwife. Successful completion of this course leads to the award of both an Honours degree and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a midwife, allowing you to practice as a professional midwife. This course achieved 98% overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2015.**Additional information**The Department of Health and Social Care in England has announced that all NHS Staff must be vaccinated against Covid-19 if they wish to work in roles that involve face-to-face contact with service users. This rule comes into effect from 1st April 2022 and includes healthcare students.All applicants need to provide evidence to our Occupational Health provider that they have received a full course of Covid-19 vaccination prior to commencing the course. If the applicant is exempt on medical grounds or because they have been involved in a clinical trial, or are under the age of 18 years of age, their ability to complete the course may be compromised. These cases will be reviewed by our Occupational Health provider to determine if reasonable adjustments to placement allocations can be made.If reasonable adjustments are not possible due to the ruling, or if an applicant declines to being vaccinated, they will be unable to meet the NMC/HCPC proficiencies for the course as they will be unable to complete placements in Care Quality Commission regulated settings, for example, the NHS or care homes.
