This popular and dynamic pre-registration midwifery course leads to an academic award and a qualification as a Registered Midwife. The course consists of approximately 50% theory and 50% clinical practice. The course is designed to stimulate your curiosity. Emphasis is also placed on motivating you to become a competent professional practitioner. You will develop a keen awareness of the need for continuing education and development throughout your professional career.
