Our undergraduate midwifery course:

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.

We also offer courses for continuing professional development, as well as postgraduate study related to midwifery.


From 15 March 2022, the UK government revoked the requirement for students engaged in patient-facing health or social care settings to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. This means that while we still encourage all eligible students to become fully vaccinated, there will be no impediment to you starting your course, regardless of your Covid-19 vaccination status.

Mandatory Occupational Health Clearance and DBS clearance is required before starting any of these courses.
