Bachelor of Midwifery

The BSc Midwifery course will prepare you to provide skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate care to women, newborn infants and their families as a qualified midwife. Midwives work across the continuum from pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, labour and birth, postpartum and early weeks of newborn infants’ life.

This course covers all aspects of midwifery including supporting mothers in a wide variety of ways after the birth; promoting breastfeeding, establishing feeding routines, bonding with babies, checking their bodies are returning to pre-pregnancy state, and discussing contraceptive choices. Furthermore, you will develop knowledge and positive role modelling to promote leadership in midwifery.

There is a strong focus on linking theory to practice with 50% of the course delivered in placement settings and the other 50% supplying you with academic theory within the university.
