Overview

You will have the opportunity to study a wide range of subjects, including anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, psychology, sociology and research methods. 

This Midwifery (Hons) course at Coventry University will give you the opportunity to become immersed in learning about the needs of populations, individuals, related health and nursing services with an emphasis on using research to enhance and improve services. This is an integrated course where theory and practice are undertaken simultaneously. As the course progresses the amount of time spent in clinical practice will increase.

Career prospects

There are thousands of midwives in today’s NHS yet the continued rise in the number of births has led the Royal College of Midwives to predict a 3,500 shortfall of qualified professionals in England.

There is a strong practical emphasis on this course, with 50% of the course expected to be spent on placements. On graduating successfully from this course, you can apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (registration fee may apply), which enables you to practise immediately in either the NHS or independent practice. As a registered midwife, you’ll have opportunities to work with a range of other professionals including gynaecologists, GPs, health visitors, neonatal nurses and maternity support workers.
