As a midwife you will care for childbearing women and families in a changing society and as such the course addresses knowledge and skills relating to contemporary midwifery practice. The theme for the first year is normal childbearing and the focus is on the acquisition of knowledge and skills for normal midwifery and the development of study skills.

Diversity in maternal and neonatal health is then focused upon. Further development of knowledge and skills in normal midwifery and the acquisition of knowledge and competence to participate in the care of women and babies who have complex needs. You will continue to develop midwifery skills and knowledge to ensure readiness to assume the full role and responsibilities of a midwife.


Teaching methods will include sessions in the classroom and skills laboratory. You will have the opportunity during dedicated simulation weeks to engage in face-to-face sessions and activities in a virtual learning environment. During clinical practice, each student has a midwifery mentor whose role is to support you in developing your midwifery skills. ‘Reflection’ upon both theory and practice as a learning method is encouraged.


An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: coursework, tests, essays 40%; presentations, posters etc.10%. other e.g. placements etc.50%.


As this is a full-time modular course, you are expected to allocate 37.5 hours per week to your learning, including up to 14 hours of teaching contact and 14 hours clinical. In a typical week, this will break down as follows:
