Bachelor of Midwifery (Hons) Registered Midwife BMidW (Hons)

This Midwifery degree covers all aspects of normal midwifery, complicated childbearing, and postnatal care. You'll also study wider issues such as health promotion, public health, law and ethics, and professional issues. Midwifery is a skills-based profession and development of your practical skills is an important part of this midwifery course.

As part of your Midwifery training, you'll gain experience on clinical placements in a number of local health boards, each lasting several weeks. To improve your employability, you'll develop knowledge and abilities to provide holistic care. You'll gain some of these skills in our Clinical Simulation Centre on campus, or on clinical placements in midwifery and other specialist areas.

Currently, if you are a UK student, your Midwifery course fees will be paid by the Welsh Government. Successful completion of this course allows you registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a qualified (registered) midwife.
