Course description

Midwifery is a diverse role â?? involving more than just delivering babies. As a qualified midwife, you will be the main contact for an expectant mother throughout pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period, supporting her family as well. So you will need to be able to recognise and respond to her physical, psychological, cultural and socio-economic needs. Midwives also play a wider role in public health within primary and secondary care settings, including sexual health promotion. This degree, spanning 45 weeks each year, prepares you for professional practice through role play and scenario-based learning, spending half your time in University and half on a placement, supported by a registered midwife. Successful completion of this course leads to the award of both an Honours degree and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a midwife, allowing you to practice as a professional midwife. This course achieved 98% overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2015.

Modules

Areas of study include: Normal childbearing processes; public health; promoting women's health; acute and emergency midwifery care.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This is the subject with the most degree graduates in 2012 - over 14,300. We'll always need nurses in this country, 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.
