The course combines theory and practice approximately 50% of each. Students are taught at the new UCS Waterfront Campus by an experienced midwifery teaching team. While in practice students work closely with their midwifery mentors who support them during hospital and community practice experiences.
This is a vocational course. Students completing the course are awarded a BSc (Hons) in Midwifery and are also able to register as a Midwife (RM) with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and therefore practice as a midwife anywhere in the UK. There are small groups of students which provide a good support network. UCS is able to provide a very experienced teaching and practice team to support students in their learning and development.
The course runs over 45 weeks per year and each academic year is divided into two semesters. Within each semester students will attend blocks of theory 2-6 weeks and blocks of practice 4-13 weeks. The first year concentrates on basic midwifery skills, anatomy and physiology, communication skills and professional conduct. The focus is on the normal childbearing experience and the knowledge and skills needed to monitor and facilitate this. As the course progresses students will be introduced to more complex aspects of theory and practice associated with childbearing and midwifery practice.
At UCS your tuition fees provide access to all the usual teaching and learning facilities that you would expect. However, there may be additional costs associated with your course that you will need to budget for.
