Course description

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.

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.
