Key facts

The Midwifery (Hons) programme at Anglia Ruskin University will help you develop into a competent midwife who’s able to work as a team member or leader. Your time will be divided equally between classroom study and supervised placements.  You’ll learn to assess individual women and to plan, implement and evaluate care that meets the needs of mother, baby and family. You’ll recognise and respond to factors that affect the physical, emotional and social well-being of mothers and babies, too. And you’ll build essential problem-solving skills while learning to work with professionals from a range of disciplines.

If you study in Cambridge, you’ll do your placement at Cambridge, in Peterborough you'll do your placement at Huntingdon or Peterborough, and in Chelmsford, you’ll do your placement at Chelmsford, Southend, Basildon, Harlow or Colchester.

On campus, you’ll attend lectures Monday-Friday. On placement, you’ll work shifts (including nights, weekends and bank holidays). You’ll have seven weeks’ non-negotiable annual holiday – two weeks over Christmas and New Year, two weeks in spring, and three weeks in summer.


Our course meets the Nursing and Midwifery Council Standards for Pre-Registration Midwifery Education . This means that when you graduate, you can apply to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and start working as a midwife. Most newly qualified midwives join an NHS Trust.

Midwifery brings unique rewards. You’re present at one of the most important moments in people’s lives, helping to safely begin the life of their child. This degree opens up a world of opportunities, including career progression, specialism and postgraduate study.
