Course description

On our Midwifery degree, you will be taught by experienced and passionate midwives who are actively engaged in research and closely involved with midwifery colleagues in practice. Our programme is equally divided between academic learning and practical experience. You will study a broad range of scientific and midwifery topics and will be taught to critically evaluate the evidence-based learning and research findings underpinning practice. You will develop a responsive attitude to the needs of childbearing women and their families, reflected in your capacity to assess these needs, make judgements, and plan, implement and evaluate care. During the programme, you will gain experience of delivering care to individual women throughout the antenatal, labour and postnatal period.

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.
