Subject

Midwifery

This three-year degree programme integrates theory and practice, preparing students for an outstanding career in Midwifery. Students will spend 50 per cent of their time in class learning midwifery theory and clinical skills, and 50 per cent of their time with one of our internationally-recognised training partners in a wide variety of clinical and community settings. Our highly-trained midwifery teaching staff are actively engaged in practice and our personal tutor system for student support is very well regarded. There are also opportunities for elective placements with one of our international partners in the final year of study.
