Overview

BSc(Hons) Midwifery is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which means you can register as a midwife with them when you graduate.

With close input from practice partners and maternity service users, the course offers an authentic, woman-centred learning experience and gives you the grounding you need to practise midwifery confidently, compassionately and to the highest standard.

Cement your understanding of the midwife’s role and learn about good midwifery practice. Develop the critical thinking and leadership skills to evaluate evidence, and help move midwifery forward.

Based at our Glenside campus UWE Bristol’s home of health and social care you’ll develop strong interpersonal and inter-professional skills to work in a team with women, their families and healthcare professionals from other disciplines.

Work with enthusiastic academics who’ve all practised as midwives themselves.

The course has a strong practical focus and you’ll spend around half of your time learning on clinical placements, supported by midwifery mentors.

Engage with service users, practising midwives, researchers and other healthcare professionals in placements, class and online.

Practise and hone your skills with medical students in hospital settings, and in our purpose-built Simulation Suite and Birth Room.

Career opportunities

Midwives are in demand across the UK and graduates enter careers in a wide variety of roles for the NHS and independent sector employers.

We have close links with our NHS partners, who are the main employers of midwifery graduates.

Once you’ve qualified, you can choose to progress into specialist areas, such as working with teenage mothers or women with drug or alcohol problems.

You could also become a specialist midwifery practitioner in areas such as infant feeding, management, lecturing or research.

Graduate midwives continue their professional development throughout their career, and there are many post-qualifying courses to support this.
