  • Course description

    Midwives face major challenges which include meeting government targets for developing women-centred services. The programme is designed to produce professional practitioners able to provide, and assume responsibility for, quality midwifery care.

    The programme is delivered in a multidisciplinary environment so that midwifery students benefit from studying alongside students from other health care disciplines in the School.

    The main emphasis during the course is the exploration of all aspects of low and high risk midwifery care, and this is reflected in the core modules undertaken in each year. In addition, you will also explore issues such as interprofessional working, sociology, psychology, biology, gynaecology care, medical complications, health promotion, research and management and have the opportunity to take one module in either complementary therapies, childbirth education or breastfeeding. Most of this time you will be working in clinical placements which link theory with practice and will be exposed to problem solving, judgement and decision making in preparation for your role as a practising midwife.
