Midwifery is a rewarding career and at the University of Central Lancashire, we aim to help you develop into a confident and competent Midwife, effectively supporting women and their families through pregnancy, birth and beyond. Using a case based learning approach to your studies, you will be able to access research and evidence based guidance to support you in becoming an autonomous practitioner. The focus on the course is based on women and family centred care, where we will support you to develop all the skills needed to provide essential support, care and advice for women and their families. You will spend approximately 50% of your time in theory and 50% of your time in clinical practice, allowing you to put theory into practice, within a safe and welcoming environment. Throughout the course you will be supported by lecturers and clinical Midwife mentors, who will support you through this challenging yet exciting course.

Within the final year of your studies, you will have the opportunity to participate in an international placement, allowing you to explore Midwifery in a different setting.

You will also have the opportunity to join the award winning UCLan Midwifery Society and Passionate Midwifery Forums, which are all arranged by the UCLan Midwifery students.

Once you complete the course, you will become a registered Midwife, registered with the Nursing and Midwifery council. You will have the opportunity to apply to work as a Midwife within the NHS or within other independent Midwifery settings.

You may also have the opportunity to work abroad, exploring Midwifery in a global context.

Midwifery is a research and evidence based career, therefore we encourage and support you to continue onto further study. At the University of Central Lancashire, we offer a dedicated MSc in Midwifery as well as opportunities for you to progress onto a PhD and other research programmes.
