Help bring new life into the world

Midwifery is a rewarding career. As a registered midwife you will be in the unique position to provide personalised care to women and their families from conception, antenatally, during labour and through to the postnatal period. This privilege can make a positive societal impact.

Our students, with the support of experienced midwife lecturers and placement mentors, develop the competencies and essential skills required by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (both courses are approved by the NMC), allowing you to apply for registration as a midwife on graduation and enter clinical practice.

We offer two midwifery courses:

  • BSc (Hons) Midwifery - for those studying a degree for the first time
  • MSc Midwifery - designed for those who have already graduated from a first degree and who are looking to change direction and return to university to train for a career as a midwife

This is where I make a difference

"It does feel like a bit of fate that I came to Bradford. Yes, they want to produce a midwife, but you're the Midwife you want to be. I realise just how much of an impact midwives have on people."
