Course summary

Overview

We’re leading providers of midwifery training

This midwifery degree takes place in our partner NHS hospitals, including London’s leading maternity units. Because the course has been developed in partnership with local NHS trusts, we’re able to offer you placements on different maternity wards. Your time studying will be equally dedicated to theory and practice.

All our teaching staff have professional career experience as midwives while many are actively involved in practice in the UK and overseas. You’ll study key modules including anatomy, physiology/pathophysiology, cultural and psychosocial issues, plus many more, to meet Nursing and Midwifery Council standards for proficiency for midwifery.

You’ll have access to state-of-the-art facilities during your studies. These include a midwifery skills lab, housed in a separate building, where a range of high-fidelity simulations are set up in areas like resuscitation and dealing with complex care needs.

Once you graduate, you’ll have a lot of career opportunities available. Your skills will be in high demand in settings like the labour and antenatal wards, private practices, as well as within communities, local clinics, and GP surgeries.

How is the BSc Midwifery taught?

The degree is split equally between theory and practice, with clinical experience and practical simulations forming an important part of your learning - the emphasis is on observing what to do, doing it yourself and then improving through feedback. You will have your own patients and will be supported by a mentor. You will also gain some experience in other areas of healthcare.

We have a blended approach to learning and you can expect to attend lectures, seminars, workshops and group and individual tutorials, and learn through problem-solving and role-play exercises, visits, critical reviews of research studies, case study analyses, group work and online research. Enquiry based learning and directed study with integrated support from both a personal tutor system and module lead specific to subject area is also integral to the programme and your development. You will keep a reflective diary of your progress.

Assessment

We’re planning to deliver our assessment in a similar way to previous years. We will review this regularly, and let you know in advance of your assessment if we need to make any changes.

You will be assessed through oral examinations, written examinations, laboratory simulations and coursework including your dissertation, your portfolio, projects, reports, drug calculations, individual and group presentations and online learning. You will also be assessed on your clinical placements.

Careers

How can the BSc Midwifery support your career?

Career opportunities for midwives go beyond hospitals, with antenatal, labour and postnatal wards and neonatal units in the private sector and NHS. They include work in the community, local clinics, children's centres and GP surgeries.

Midwifery is a well-paid field with excellent career progression which can be enhanced with elements of research, teaching, practice development and management - including management at board level within an NHS trust.
