Overview

With our Midwifery programme from Cardiff University you will be guided to learn at a Russell Group University by motivated and knowledgeable midwifery lecturers who are influencing healthcare across Wales, UK and globally through engagement and research.

We strive to deliver an exceptional programme that will equip you to graduate with an Honours degree and to be eligible to enter the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) Register as knowledgeable, safe, proficient and compassionate midwives who take responsibility as lead professionals in the care of women, pregnant people, newborns and families, across all contexts, by optimising principles of autonomy and accountability.

We encourage intellectual curiosity and creativity amongst our students and support you to consider your personal and professional ethical and social responsibilities.

We value partnership and co-production with practice partners in the NHS and 50% of the midwifery programme is spent working alongside midwives and the multi-professional and multi-agency teams, both in community and midwifery-led settings and in hospital maternity settings.

A varied placement experience undertaken across the three years of the programme will allow you to integrate academic theory with practice learning. We actively promote opportunities for interprofessional learning throughout the programme and support you to become effective members of interdisciplinary teams. We integrate global awareness and citizenship throughout the programme, respecting human rights, equality and diversity and the importance of compassionate leadership.

Our midwifery graduates emulate positive personal leadership by commitment to reflection, lifelong learning and self-care; demonstrating professional courage, advocacy and the promotion of excellence in themselves and services through quality improvement.
