Course summary

The course has been designed to encourage students to think critically and apply evidence to underpin their clinical practice. The course has been developed to meet the NMC's education requirements for student midwives and is underpinned by national policy. Students have the opportunity to undertake clinical practice within a non-midwifery setting, including in a medical, neonatal unit, and within a hospital gynaecology ward. Throughout the course, students can learn about how to ensure women are given informed choice and remain at the centre of the decision-making process.

Midwives offer specialist support to mothers from the antenatal to the postnatal period, and work with a range of healthcare professionals to promote the best interests of a mother and her baby. Underpinned by national policy, our midwifery degree focuses on women-centred holistic care, combining theory with practical placements. It aims to enable successful graduates to become eligible to register as a midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

How You Study

The programme aims to encourage students to think critically and apply evidence to underpin their clinical practice. The programme is mapped to NMC requirements for the education of student midwives and is underpinned by national policy. The programme is 50 per cent theory and 50 per cent practice-based. There are opportunities to experience a wide range of practice placements, ranging from the antenatal to the postnatal period, incorporating intrapartum care and covering the whole childbearing continuum, encompassing midwifery and consultant-led care. It examines a wide variety of physical, social, and psychological needs, and knowledge of the transition to parenting and care of a newborn can also be developed.

Placements

Students undertake two practice modules each year where competencies are assessed by mentors within clinical practice in line with the NMC. Midwifery placements vary and can encompass community, antenatal and postnatal wards, day assessment units, labour wards, and birth centres. The aim of placements is to enhance learning and prepare students for clinical practice. In the third year there is the opportunity to undertake a five-week elective placement, either in the UK or internationally.

Your Future Career

The course aims to enable students to become accountable practitioners fit for registration as a midwife on successful completion of the course. Graduates may wish to undertake postgraduate study as they progress as clinicians.
