Study our degree in midwifery for rewarding careers supporting women and their families through childbirth. An additional programme offered at our Medway Campus will be starting this September, pending approval by the NMC. Midwives are the lead professionals at all straightforward births, whether this takes place at home, a birth centre or in hospital. Whilst on the programme, you will acquire the knowledge and skills you need to meet the needs of women and babies. This will include childbirth in the delivery suite, birth centres and home environments. You will learn accountability for the role you play in their lives, both during and after pregnancy. Care will be based on best available evidence and reflect contemporary knowledge, practice, research and technology. Our midwifery degree prepares you for the role and responsibilities of a registered midwife. You'll be working in the NHS serving the women and families of south-east London and Kent. We continually develop new courses to reflect the needs of students, employers, and professional bodies. You can choose to study this course at either our Avery Hill Campus or our Medway Campus. The course based at our Medway Campus in Kent is currently subject to the final stage of NMC approval and validation process. In the unlikely event that the course based at Medway is not approved before the start date, we will help you find an alternative course. What you should know about this course:
- State-of-the-art simulation facilities where you will be able to practice your acquired skills such as examination of the new-born infant.
- Nursing and Midwifery at Greenwich is number one in London for satisfaction with teaching (Guardian League Tables 2022).
- Students studying this course can expect to earn up to £31,000 on graduation (HESA, 2020).
- You will be allocated a place in a NHS trust for the three-year course.
All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.
Students are assessed through a combination of course work, exams and practical assessment where relevant. You can view more information about how each module on this course is assessed within our 'What you will study' section. Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
