Midwifery

City, University of London has over 120 years’ experience educating midwives, having previously been known as the St Bartholomew School of Nursing and Midwifery and as it is now, within City's School of Health Sciences.

Our longstanding relationship with some of London’s leading hospitals and trusts including Bart’s Health NHS Trust, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the East London NHS Foundation Trust and Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, mean that students benefit from placements in a diverse range of settings. City offers courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate degree level. Students benefit from excellent facilities at our central London campuses including our specialist Clinical Skills Centre at Northampton Square, providing the opportunity for simulated practical classes from the very start of their degree. On successful completion of undergraduate courses students gain registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), providing an internationally recognised professional qualification.
