What career could be more rewarding than one that helps to bring new life into the world? This course, with its high student satisfaction rates and accreditation by the Nursing & Midwifery Council, can teach you to do just that! You can opt to study at either of our coastal campuses; Bournemouth, which starts in September, or Portsmouth, which begins in February. Alongside learning knowledge from highly qualified and experienced practitioners, during compelling units such as antenatal & postnatal care of mother and baby, labour and birth, and medicines management, etc, you’ll use our state-of-the-art clinical rooms to practise your blossoming skills in a safe environment, before transitioning into the workplace. There you’ll get to spend 50% of your course time on placements with mothers and their newborn babies. This is a pre-registration midwifery course that has been adapted for those students who already have a degree. We also offer a BSc (Hons) in Midwifery if you don't have a degree. Students on this PG Dip course will work alongside the BSc (Hons) Midwifery students; however some units will be grouped with other PG Dip students from other nursing pathways, and your academic tutor will focus on your individual development at Master's level.
Bournemouth University offers a diverse range of courses from advertising to midwifery, and has a variety of award-winning facilities. The Students' Union at BU runs campaigns throughout the year and provides outstanding advice and exciting events, club nights, volunteering and fundraising opportunities. Our Media School is the only Centre for Excellence in Media Practice in the UK.
