Find out more about the TEF.

This three year BSc (Hons) Midwifery pre-registration course aims to develop midwives who are competent and confident to practice in current and future maternity care settings.

We have developed the curriculum with NHS providers to give you the academic and professional qualifications you need to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a midwife.

The course focuses strongly on normality in childbirth, as well as recognising when referral is required. You will learn how to manage complex situations and engage with current research and evidence to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to provide a high standard of care.

You will also learn to work as a professional both autonomously and as part of a multidisciplinary team, to give women and their families the best care possible in a safe and supportive environment.

Breastfeeding Initiative logoThis course is accredited by Unicef’s Baby Friendly Initiative. Baby Friendly accreditation is based on a set of interlinking evidence-based standards for maternity, health visiting, neonatal and children’s centres services. See the Unicef website to find out more.

Your degree can take you anywhere. Once qualified, you may choose to work within the community, a hospital, as part of a case loading team or in the private sector.

You may also wish to undertake postgraduate study to specialise in a subject you've already studied, or to explore something new.
