What will I learn?

**The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) which regulates midwives and midwife education is changing the standards required to be a midwife, and as a result there will be a new course structure from September 2021. The updated NMC-approved course information will be available on our website by mid - 2021. In the meantime, more information about the new standards can be found on the NMC website.**Midwives are the first and main contact for the expectant mother, providing information on health issues, pregnancy, the birth and practical caring skills so that mothers can make informed choices about the services and options available. Our course will provide you with a wide range of experiences focused on the needs of women, you and your fellow students, service providers and the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).You'll train using purpose built facilities including our Virtual Home Environment, commended by the NMC for creating live simulations for student to rehearse practical scenarios, while receiving continuous individual support and encouragement from both your personal tutor and course mentors. Our physical facilities include a home environment, birthing area and teaching tools, including use of a birth simulator and neonatal manikins to help simulate a variety of birth scenarios.We have also been awarded the Unicef Stage 1 Baby Friendly Initiative. It's rare for a university to achieve this, which highlights just how detailed our best practice is around this vital area. Our staff are all registered midwives with a diverse range of clinical experience and interest. They work hard to ensure their teaching reflects every day up to date midwifery practice. Upon qualification you'll be eligible for registration with the NMC means you can practice in the UK and overseas. In addition, you'll also have the opportunity to gain the NHS Newborn and Infant Physical Examination(NIPE) qualification.Extracurricular opportunities include international visits through our Go Abroad scheme.
