The Bachelor of Midwifery (Honours) course prepares you to practice safely and effectively as a midwife.

The programme will enable you to deliver and lead evidence-based care for families and babies, working in partnership with multi-disciplinary teams and it reflects the requirements of the ‘Future Midwife’ standards of education and proficiency (NMC 2019). This includes optimising normal physiological processes, providing a first-line response to, and management of complications, as well as supporting women and newborns with additional care needs. Throughout the course there is a strong focus on perinatal mental health, public health and continuity of care.
