Will this course suit you?

Sources: UCAS & KIS

Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses

Course description

Our Midwifery course aims to take you through all aspects of modern practice, beginning with ‘normal’ childbearing in year one and moving on to diversity in maternity and neonatal health in your second year. Upon the successful completion of your third year, you should have the necessary skills to take on the professional role of a midwife! Teaching is split between tutorials, laboratory skills sessions, lectures, and you being on clinical placement – our nursing placements were recently voted 2nd best in the UK. You’ll be supported by experienced, professional midwives while you learn, who should act as a ‘mentor’ and help you to develop.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
19,890 nursing qualifications were awarded in 2015, making it much the most popular degree in the country. Despite that, we have a serious shortage of nurses - estimates suggest that we're over 20,000 nurses short - that is only set to continue. So it's no surprise to see that the very large majority of nursing graduates go on to become nurses, and that starting salaries are pretty competitive. There are lots of different specialties to choose from (including midwifery), and the most common by far is adult nursing, but the typical end result for graduates is the same — they go on to become nurses (or midwives). That’s not to say that you can’t do anything else. Some nursing graduates get other jobs - usually, but not always, in health or caring professions, or management, and with nurses in such demand, there are always going to be options for you. Do be aware that even this doesn't necessarily guarantee you can get the exact nursing job you want exactly where you want though - some flexibility in type of job and location will still help your career.
