Course description

This popular course will enable you to become an independent learner and to develop the skills and knowledge needed for a challenging, but rewarding, career in midwifery. You will be part of a small cohort – which ensures you receive optimum support from the midwifery lecturing staff and experienced midwives in practice – and you will be able to practise midwifery in a variety of settings.

Modules

We offer the following pathways to BSc registration as a midwife. • a three-year BSc (Hons) for those with no previous health care experience • a 21-month post-experience BSc (Hons) for Adult nurses with a current registration with the NMC. In addition to midwifery-specific knowledge, the course covers biological sciences, evidence-based practice, research skills, and the social, psychological, ethical, multicultural and interprofessional dimensions of midwifery care. A significant number of teaching sessions take place in the well-equipped clinical skills suites, enabling you to practise midwifery skills in a safe environment. Placements enable you to gain experience in different settings. You will be providing midwifery care, including night, weekend and on-call duty. All students will work in the Women’s Centre based at the John Radcliffe Hospital, part of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust.

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.
