Career perspectives

Midwives are always in demand, whether working in hospitals or in community healthcare settings, and 100% of our BSc Midwifery graduates are in employment or further study six months after graduating (Unistats).

As a midwife or midwife practitioner, you will advise, care and support women and their babies during pregnancy, labour and the early postnatal period. You'll help women to make their own decisions about care and services and will provide health education and parenting advice.

Depending on the course you choose, you can gain registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which gives an internationally recognised professional qualification enabling you to practise in the UK and overseas.
