Midwives are the first and main contact for the expectant mother and they will provide information on health issues, pregnancy, the birth and practical caring skills, so that mothers can make informed choices about the services and options available. The curriculum exposes you to a breadth of experiences focused on the needs of women, you and your fellow students, service providers and the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Train using purpose built facilities including our Virtual Home Environment, commended by the NMC for creating live simulations for student to rehearse practical scenarios, whilst receiving continuous individual support and encouragement from both your personal tutor and course mentors. Our state-of-the-art facilities include a home environment, birthing area and teaching tools, including use of a birth simulator and neonatal mannequins to help simulate a variety of birth scenarios. We were recently awarded the Unicef Stage 1 Baby Friendly Initiative. It's rare for a University to achieve this, which highlights just how detailed our best practice is around this vital area. Our staff are all registered midwives with a diverse range of clinical experience and interest. They work hard to ensure their teaching reflects every day up to date midwifery practice. Registration with the NMC means you can practice in the UK and overseas.
