Midwifery BSc Honours

Course content
Through your three years study, key modules will provide the necessary theory to meet Nursing and Midwifery Council standards of proficiency for midwifery, which include anatomy and physiology/pathophysiology, cultural and psychosocial issues, and interprofessional working, legal and ethical issues.
During your time in clinical practice (on placement) you will experience the role of the midwife in a professional context. Working shifts across a 24/7 care plan, you will develop your understanding of the needs and experiences of women and babies within a clinical setting.
Upon graduation, you will be able to confidently assess, plan, implement and evaluate effective midwifery care. Your learning will be integrated with other students from our School of Health and Education and designated study days will be organised for shared learning with midwifery, medical and social work students.
You will learn the skills to function effectively in a multi-professional team across healthcare and related sectors.
