Why Study This Course?

The intention of this BSc Midwifery: For Registered Nurses (Adult) (Hons) course from University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is to produce a midwife who is woman centred and passionate about midwifery practice. Therefore,we have designed a course that ensures learning; skill development and care delivery are focused on the promotion of health and wellbeing sensitive to the socio-cultural context of all individuals concerned. 

A case based approach to teaching and learning is used with an emphasis on pregnancy, birth and health being on a continuum, rather than the traditional way of identifying the woman as low or high risk. The case based learning approach provides opportunities for a wide range of learning and teaching strategies with the majority being student led. 

Therefore, the students on this course of study are very much active participants and equal partners in their learning and we aim to ensure learning, is relevant, fun and meaningful with each individual having a unique contribution to make to the learning experience.

Exciting Opportunities

You will have the opportunity to join the UCLan Midwifery Society and Passionate Midwifery Forum. The course also offers an opportunity for an elective placement, this can include Kenya and Uganda as well as other locations worldwide.

Your midwifery qualifications and experience will open up a wide range of options to develop your career in the directions that interest you most. As your knowledge and expertise increase, you could move into more senior practitioner roles, become a team or unit manager or move into other professions, including neonatal nursing or health visiting. 

Registration with the NMC as a registered Midwife will allow you to work independently as a private practitioner. UK trained Midwives hold an international recognised and respected qualification and the profession is much sort after the world over.
