The Division of Midwifery offers a dynamic, values based midwifery degree course. We have created an integrated programme structure that supports you as you become a more confident independent learner and practitioner.
The curriculum has been designed to be student-centred so that the workload is achievable and is mindful of what our student midwives have to achieve in each year of the programme. It prepares midwifery students to become competent, autonomous practitioners with highly developed practical skills and the ability to support women and their families with understanding and compassion.
We have an outstanding reputation for teaching and research excellence which is reflected throughout the curriculum. In the latest Research Excellence Framework our nursing and midwifery research was ranked 8th for impact.

The three year degree programme has been designed for those who wish to complete the requirements for an honours degree as well as eligibility for registration as a midwife.
This course has two student intakes, one in September and one in the following January. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to select which intake they would prefer at interview.
Midwifery students commencing their programme from September 2017 onwards will have the opportunity to study for the Neonatal and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE) Award. There is a high demand for NIPE trained midwives in the NHS, so leaving our BSc programme with this additional qualification will enhance your midwifery career prospects.
We also offer courses for continuing professional development, as well as postgraduate study related to midwifery.
