Subject

Midwifery

Working as an individual or as part of a team midwives educate, inform and empower women to make their own choices to have the best birth experience they can have. A calm and caring nature and the ability to communicate is essential to successfully support women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period.

At the University of Leeds, we’re proud to offer outstanding teaching from some of the most inspirational lecturers in midwifery. In fact, our teaching has been rated Gold by the Teaching Excellence Framework. We’re looking for people who want to make a positive difference in people’s lives, who are caring, courageous and compassionate. We’ll help you develop the qualities that define a University of Leeds midwifery student – a problem solver, decision maker, innovator and an advocate for your patients.

This exciting three year honours course is designed to develop midwives with the skills and knowledge to work in the dynamic, fast-moving healthcare environment to manage change and develop critical and analytical skills, as well as clinical skills to practice as a midwife.

We have stimulating placements in a variety of settings with two of the best teaching hospitals in Europe: St James Teaching Hospital and Leeds General Infirmary, but we offer much more choice - and a range of midwifery placements in clinical areas such as: day units, postnatal, antenatal ward, clinic and delivery suites.

Modules

http://medhealth.leeds.ac.uk/coursefinder/25762/BSc_Midwifery

Assessment methods

The majority of modules contain midwifery theory and practice in which 40% of the module mark is the grade achieved in practice. This contributes to the overall degree classification.

We use a range of assessment methods, including presentations, group assessments, unseen examinations, OSCEs (Objective Structured Clinical Examinations) in level 1 and 3, along with essays, a final oral examination and the grading of clinical practice.

You’ll need to demonstrate the knowledge and application of standard concepts, information and techniques, as well as your emerging abilities, skills and competencies.

You’ll need to produce work that is typically both evaluative and creative and show you can conduct independent, in-depth enquiry within the discipline. You need to be able to draw on a wide variety of material and be able to evaluate and criticise received opinion.
