Course summary

Our Midwifery Studies degree is designed to help you become a competent, confident and autonomous practitioner with the knowledge and skills to pursue a successful career. Learning from experienced midwives and gaining real-world experience in a variety of healthcare settings, you’ll be able to prepare to make a difference in the lives of women and their families. * The course is designed by midwives for midwives and regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). * You’ll undertake clinical placements throughout the course in a range of settings including birth centres, midwife-led units, labour suites, antenatal/postnatal wards, as well as in the community. * We’ll help you learn how to provide individualised care for the mother and baby throughout pregnancy, labour, childbirth and the early days of parenthood. * You’ll be encouraged to build your communication and interpersonal skills alongside the theoretical and practical learning. * You’ll have the opportunity to hear the experiences and viewpoints from service users and carers, who are part of the Public Partnership Group. Many different cultural, social and health-related influences affect child-bearing women. On this course, we know just how important it is for student midwives to learn about midwifery in context, to gain a broad perspective on the delivery of care and to be supported by enthusiastic lecturers who know exactly what it’s like to be a midwife. Throughout the course you’ll have the opportunity to build excellent knowledge of the theory of midwifery. Across all areas of teaching, we focus on the promotion of normality, health and the safe management of pregnancy, to ensure the best possible outcomes for parents and the newborn. The Government has announced that from September 2020 new and existing students studying this course will be eligible to receive a non-repayable grant of at least £5,000 each year. Further information is available on the Government's website (https://www.gov.uk/government/news/nursing-students-to-receive-5-000-payment-a-year?utmsource=Weekly%3A+Policy+bulletin+subscribers&utmcampaign=72985ca48b-EMAILCAMPAIGN201912170913&utmmedium=email&utmterm=0f0569fed7f-72985ca48b-282405321) and the Council of Deans Frequently Asked Questions (https://councilofdeans.org.uk/2019/12/new-student-support-arrangements-for-healthcare-students/?utmsource=Weekly%3A+Policy+bulletin+subscribers&utmcampaign=72985ca48b-EMAILCAMPAIGN201912170913&utmmedium=email&utmterm=0f0569fed7f-72985ca48b-282405321). As an External Examiner for the Midwifery BSc(Hons) course at the University of Huddersfield, I have found the course team to be a delight to work with, and the relationship with them has been a real partnership. The course is engaging and provides students will all the professional attributes and clinical skills they will need. Therefore, upon successful completion of the programme, they are ready to practice as a Midwife once registered with the NMC. The course team encourage, support and engage with the students to help them achieve their maximum potential. Feedback from students, throughout my tenure, has invariably been positive. The skills of particular staff have been mentioned for the manner in which they have inspired students, giving them a glimpse of the Midwife they hope to become. The impact of such positive role modelling cannot be underestimated in preparing students for future employability. ~ Carol Mashhadi, External Examiner for Midwifery Studies BSc(Hons).
