This 20 month course transforms registered adult nurses into registered midwives. The programme is designed to prepare to meet the needs of the childbearing population and the maternity services. You will have the privilege of helping women and families enjoy positive and healthy pregnancy and birth experiences.

Your midwifery qualifications and experience will open up a wide range of options to develop your career in the directions that interest you most. As your knowledge and expertise increase, you could move into more senior practitioner roles, become a team or unit manager or move into other professions, including neonatal nursing or health visiting. Registration with the NMC as a registered Midwife will allow you to work independently as a private practitioner. UK trained Midwives hold an international recognised and respected qualification and the profession is much sort after the world over.

We offer many progression routes for graduates including various Masters programmes and research opportunities.

You need to be on the NMC Register and currently practicing as a Registered General (adult) Nurse with at least 12 months experience in an acute setting, and be resident in the UK for three years, to be eligible for the NHS funding.
