Please apply for the next available intake. 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.

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.
