**We are proud to be ranked number one in London for Nursing and Midwifery (Guardian University League Tables, 2020)**

It is taught across St George's, University of London and the Kingston Hill campuses.

**What will you study?**
You will be offered clinical experience within local NHS trusts and the surrounding community. We aim to co-ordinate your clinical placements to reflect the modules being studied, integrating theory and practice.

The themes that run through the programme are midwifery profession and practice, research, biological science, social science, health promotion/public health, and law and ethics.

A satisfactory health declaration, including immunisations, and a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check are required from accepted candidates before registration for the programme.

**Our 2020 curriculum is currently being revised in line with the new NMC standards.**
