BFI accredited
UWL midwifery courses are BFI accredited

We offer a three-year pre-registration BSc (Hons) Midwifery course and an 18 month post-registration BSc (Hons) Midwifery course.

Our courses are grounded in research and evidence, and we focus on normality in childbirth as well as recognising when a referral is required.

You will learn:

  • how to manage complex situations
  • skills needed to deliver a high standard of care
  • how to work autonomously as well as within a multidisciplinary team

All of this teaching will ensure you can deliver the best possible care in a safe, supportive environment to women and their families.

Our curriculum was created in conjunction with our NHS providers.

Successful completion of the course enables you to become a registered midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
