This course provides you with a carefully designed combination of theoretical study and practical experience, equipping you with all the skills and abilities you need to confidently work as a compassionate midwife. A demanding profession with much responsibility, midwifery is an extremely popular career choice that provides diverse and rewarding opportunities. We will encourage you to develop the critical thinking and problem solving skills essential for midwifery professionals working in a constantly evolving area of healthcare. Our innovative degree will support you in making a significant contribution to the health of women, their babies and their families. Midwifery is about caring and this intrinsic belief is inherent in the way in which midwifery is taught and practised. Caring is based on humanistic principles and a belief system that respects the wishes of women and their families. It includes recognition of the emotional and spiritual needs of women and families, as well as the physical, social and psychological nature of childbearing. This is reflected in the philosophy adopted for midwifery, which serves to integrate both the art and science of the profession. The science of midwifery includes biological principles, research, methods of inquiry, decision making, assessing, planning, implementing and evaluating care. Whilst the art of midwifery focuses on communication and the approach to delivering care, encompassing genuine caring, respect, sensitivity, and valuing the uniqueness of individuals in a culturally diverse society. As a student on the programme, you will gain a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of both the science and art of midwifery. This degree will enable students to gain a Bachelor level Midwifery qualification and registration as a Midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Students completing this programme will, through the provision of high quality educational experience, meet NMC requirements (NMC 2009) to realise their potential as autonomous, accountable professionals who provide safe and effective care for child bearing women and their babies. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: We regret that this course is unable to accept applications from international fee-status applicants because of its association with the National Health Service (NHS) and the restrictions on funding and clinical placements.
