Midwifery

Our Midwifery course consistently achieve 98-100% employment at the point of registration. Over the course of your studies you will be supported by our Careers and Employability Service to ensure our midwifery graduates are well-prepared for employment. Our Midwifery course is studied over three years full-time. On completion of the course you will be awarded with a BSc (Hons) Midwifery degree and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Our course is also BFI accredited by Unicef meaning that our Midwifery students will be equipped with knowledge and understanding of infant feeding to UNICEF UK standards. This standard is internationally recognised as a mark of excellence. You will have the opportunity to practice your midwifery skills in a simulated environment in our purpose built midwifery clinical skills laboratory. Each of the three years of the course comprise periods of theory and applied practice and you will be placed at one of three NHS Trust sites to gain practical experience: Kettering, Northampton and Milton Keynes. Career opportunities are wide ranging upon qualification, within and outside of the NHS. Initially after a period of preceptorship training and post-registration clinical experience, you can progress into fields such as clinical leadership, specialisms such as bereavement, teenage pregnancy and infant feeding, as well as education and research. Employment opportunities are available both in the UK and abroad. All of your essential reading will be available from the University's Library which means that all your essential course reading materials are available for free when you start with us. Join us in September 2018 and be the first to experience student life at the University’s brand-new Waterside Campus. Come along to one of our Open Days to find out more.
