Midwifery: Registered Midwife BSc (Hons)

Midwifery is a diverse role – involving more than just delivering babies. As a qualified midwife, you will be the main contact for an expectant mother throughout pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period, supporting her family as well. So you will need to be able to recognise and respond to her physical, psychological, cultural and socio-economic needs. Midwives also play a wider role in public health within primary and secondary care settings, including sexual health promotion.

This degree, spanning 45 weeks each year, prepares you for professional practice through role play and scenario-based learning, spending half your time in University and half on a placement, supported by a registered midwife.

Successful completion of this course leads to the award of both an Honours degree and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a midwife, allowing you to practice as a professional midwife.
