Course summary

**Course overview**- Midwifery is a rewarding career and at the University of Central Lancashire, we aim to help you develop into a confident and competent midwife, effectively supporting women and their families through pregnancy, birth and beyond.- Being a midwife is more than just delivering babies, it is about providing care to women and families at one of the most important times of their lives. A midwife is usually the first and main contact for the woman and her family during her pregnancy, throughout labour and in the period following the birth of the baby. As a qualified midwife, you’ll be responsible for providing care and supporting women to make informed choices about their care.- You’ll benefit from a case-based approach to learning, where you will learn how to adapt your specialist knowledge to each woman’s individual circumstances and wishes, resulting in a more positive experience for both of you. At the end of this degree programme, which is divided between academic study and clinical practical, you will be professionally registered as a midwife.- You’ll spend approximately 50% of your time in theory and 50% of your time in clinical practice, allowing you to put theory into practice, within a safe and welcoming environment. Throughout the course you’ll be supported by lecturers and clinical midwife mentors on this challenging yet exciting course.- Midwifery is a research and evidence based career, therefore we encourage and support you to continue onto further study. At the University of Central Lancashire, we offer a dedicated MSc in Midwifery as well as opportunities for you to progress onto a PhD and other research programmes.**Why study with us**- Bachelor of Science with Honours in Midwifery is ranked 1st in the UK with 100% of students satisfied with teaching (National Student Survey 2020)- Our midwifery degree programmes have been handed the prestigious Unicef UK Baby Friendly Award for the high levels of education in breastfeeding provided to students.- The midwifery education team is supported by internationally renowned researchers in Midwifery and Infant Nutrition.**Further information**- Once you complete the course, you will become a registered midwife, registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. You’ll have the opportunity to apply to work as a midwife within the NHS or within other independent midwifery settings. As your knowledge and expertise increase, you could move into more senior practitioner roles, become a team or unit manager.- You may also have the opportunity to work abroad, exploring midwifery in a global context.- Midwifery is a research and evidence based career, therefore we encourage and support you to continue onto further study. At the University of Central Lancashire, we offer a dedicated MSc in Midwifery as well as opportunities for you to progress onto a PhD and other research programmes.**UCLan’s midwifery programme is approved to be delivered at Preston and Burnley campuses. When you apply for a midwifery place at UCLan you are not able to choose which campus you attend, although you may apply through either UCAS codes. We do invite applicants to share their preferences at interview, however it is not always possible to offer the first choice due to the limitation of numbers on each campus. The decision regarding the final offer is made by the midwifery course team and is dependent on a number of factors.**
