The Midwifery BSc at King’s offers the opportunity for students who are not registered nurses to study for professional registration as a Midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. The programme will equip you with the skills to become a competent midwifery practitioner who is confident in promoting high-quality, evidence-based maternity care to women, babies and families. We emphasise the distinct role and responsibilities of midwives working within public health and inter-professional teams in maternity services. There are opportunities to explore local, national and international contexts of maternal health and to undertake an elective at the end of year three.
King's is the 'fun' university of London. We're slap bang in the middle of the world's best city, making us a rather big deal. Our five campuses are filled with academically driven, sports loving, volunteering and sociable students, with an active Students' Union who proudly promotes diversity, equality and fairness. Desmond Tutu, Florence Nightingale and John Keats all studied at King's.
