Course content

Join the rewarding world of midwifery to make the most of your existing nursing skills. If you’re a qualified adult nurse with six months’ experience and a 2:1 bachelor’s degree, you’re ready to take advantage of our shortened midwifery Postgraduate Diploma.

Working with your midwife mentor and our faculty lecturers and tutors, you’ll develop a thorough knowledge of the sector. We want you to come away confident in your abilities – and compassionate, always putting the needs of your clients first.

You’ll begin by learning about normal midwifery practice, then progress on to complex needs and more specific areas. Throughout the course, we’ll weave in the latest research and tools.

You’ll also learn a lot on the job, working at one of our partner trusts. This means you can put your knowledge to use straight away – and come back to your tutors and lecturers with any questions that come up during practice.
