Course description

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work offers a three-year, full- time Bachelor of Midwifery (Honours) Degree programme for non-nurses. Successful completion of the programme will lead to professional registration as a midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

The course begins in September of each year. Places should be applied for between September and January via UCAS.

The course is split into units of study and the hours are divided equally between theory and practice. Some weeks are spent in University and others in clinical practice but on the whole the week is divided between two days in University and three days in clinical practice. Students will be expected to work alongside their mentors when in practice which would involve working a mixture of early and late shifts and weekends. Periods of night duty are also included within the programme.
