Intake: February

Pregnancy and birth are major events in the life of a woman and her family. Midwives are involved in all aspects of maternity care and have a key role in helping women to have the best experiences and health outcomes.

From early pregnancy through the first weeks after birth, midwives work with women and their families to give advice and identify healthcare needs. As a student midwife, you will undertake programmes specifically designed to develop and achieve the competencies, skills and knowledge required to register as a midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

The programme will prepare you for your future career by enhancing your understanding of the roles of different professionals in a team-based service. You will spend time working in interprofessional groups with students from other healthcare programmes.

“Southampton is an excellent place to study. The balance between theory and practice is seamless. The course is certainly challenging but the support provided by tutors and peers is second to none. The local maternity unit continues to provide outstanding opportunities to develop my
confidence and my practical skills.”
