  • Become a knowledgeable and respectful midwife.
  • Learn to care for women, newborn infants and their families.
  • Respond to increasing complexity in antenatal care.
This is an exciting and innovative course covering all aspects of 21st-century midwifery. You’ll learn to practise as the lead professional for the care of women and newborn infants, partners and families – as well as working in integrated care teams. How you learn All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive. The course is designed to promote independent, lifelong learning – with half of the programme spent in study and half on a clinical placement You’ll learn with, from and about students from other health and social care courses. These experiences give you both a sound basis in midwifery and an understanding of how other professionals contribute to health and social care services. You learn through
  • practice placements
  • lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials
  • practical sessions
  • independent learning
  • technology-enhanced learning
  • Oxford Medical Simulation virtual reality software for remote or on-campus learning
Applied learning Work placements On this course you’ll be given opportunities across a range of clinical settings. After your first year you’ll rotate to a different Trust, and then return to the first Trust in your third year. You’ll work both in hospitals and out in the community, with our placement partners there to support you at every step. As part of your clinical practice, you’ll be allocated a small group of expectant mothers as part of your caseload. This means you get to experience the long-term challenge of providing quality care to a mother and her newborn, including being on call for the birth. In your second year, you’ll also have the option of choosing a module that allows you to work nationally or internationally. Networking opportunities You’ll be able to take part in a range of activities with students from other health and social care courses. These activities are designed to improve your employability skills – such as the Hallam Leadership Award, which helps you prepare to become a future midwifery leader.
