Undergraduate courses at City are focused on preparing students for the challenging and rewarding role of a midwife. Our priority is to give you the skills and knowledge to deal with the diverse experiences you will have as a midwife with knowledge and confidence. As an undergraduate student you will spend approximately 60% of your time on placements in some of London’s leading hospitals, trusts and community settings 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.
To prepare you for clinical placements, as well as traditional classroom teaching, you will be taught through simulated practice in our Clinical Skills Centre. The centre mirrors the real-world healthcare environment and gives students the opportunity to practice and develop their skills in a safe environment ready for placements.
City’s BSc Midwifery course is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC); successful graduates are eligible to apply for registration with the NMC when they complete their course, allowing them to practise in the UK, Ireland and some overseas countries.
Postgraduate and workforce development courses
City offers a portfolio of postgraduate and Continuing Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) courses, designed for professionals looking to advance their practice and take the next step in their career.
Our Masters degrees offer students a flexible study option, with core modules kept to a minimum, allowing students to tailor their course to suit their area of specialism or interest. CPPD modules are offered in a range of specialist areas throughout the academic year and give students the opportunity to study at a time and at a pace which suits them.
You will be taught by our highly experienced academic team, many of whom are active researchers and practitioners, meaning teaching is current, relevant and looking to the future of midwifery treatment and practice.
