Subject

Midwifery

Our Midwifery (BMidwif) course will develop you into a highly employable, first-class midwife.

You will follow a woman-centred approach to midwifery care thanks to a curriculum that has been highly commended by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

Our course also includes themes such as applying bioscience knowledge to practice, tackling health inequalities and evidence-based practice.

Your study time will be divided equally between academic and practice-based learning , enabling you to apply theory to work. You will learn from some of the country's leading midwifery lecturers, researchers and clinicians, as well as experts from across the University.

Upon graduation, you will be able to register with the NMC and practice midwifery anywhere in the UK, as well as in many other parts of the world.

**Aims**

We aim to help you develop the clinical, communication and thinking skills needed to provide high-quality midwifery care for women and families from a range of diverse backgrounds, as well as to coordinate services from the wider health, social care and voluntary sectors.

By the end of this course, you will have developed into a competent and compassionate midwife with a unique set of skills in woman-centred care, clinical decision-making, leadership, research, and public health.

**Special Features**

**Split weeks**

Spending most weeks studying two days at the University and three days in placement helps you to apply theory to practice, enjoy a varied schedule, and have regular access to tutor support and university facilities.

**Excellent support**

Benefit from support from a wide range of sources, including your academic advisor, link lecturers, placement mentors, our Peer Assisted Study Scheme and University-wide services.

**Award-winning content**

Our course achieved UNICEF UK Baby Friendly University Accreditation in 2016 for incorporating high-quality education for students on supporting mothers with breastfeeding and relationship building.

**Inter-professional learning**

Enjoy specific learning experiences alongside students training for other health professions, such as pharmacists and mental health nurses.

**Case-holding**

You will get the opportunity to provide continuity of midwifery care for a small number of women, building confidence in your skills as they develop.

**Midwifery electives**

Choose from specialist options for your Year 3 elective to explore future midwifery careers, including research, education and global midwifery practice.

**Examination of the Newborn qualification**

The theory part of this additional qualification is included in your degree, helping your future career development.

**Research**

Manchester is ranked the best for nursing and midwifery research in the UK, so our undergraduates benefit from studying in a rich learning environment.
