Skills and Training
The course is delivered through a mixture of clinical practice and academic study. You will experience a wealth of opportunities for learning with midwives, women and their families within the hospital and community settings. From the outset of your journey you will be able to apply your growing knowledge and skills holistically through the undertaking of a small caseload of women. This will be with the support of your mentors and supervisors of midwives. A portfolio of practice will help to steer your learning and integrate the theoretical strands into your practice.
On successful completion of the course students will be able to register with the NMC to practice as a midwife. Students will also be able to top-up their Postgraduate Diploma to a Masters degree at City University London.
Courses start in September and March each year.
