About the course
*Please note, applications for 2017 entry are now closed*
At the University of Hull, our School of Health and Social Work has strong engagement with patients, people who use services, their carers and friends, ensuring our programmes remain contemporary and relevant. Our professors’ research strengths in midwifery, and in maternal and sexual health, are applicable at all levels. Your degree is split 50:50 between classes and full-time mentored clinical placements with Hull and East Yorkshire, North East or North Lincolnshire NHS trusts; Leeds Hospitals, or at Scarborough Hospital.
Through clinical practice and scheduled classes, Midwifery students at Hull gain the skills and self-confidence needed to become a key member of a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals. You are supported by an experienced team of staff who are dedicated to producing high quality health practitioners.
On completion of the programme, you will be a qualified midwife capable of providing a safe, competent and satisfactory experience for the childbearing woman, the baby, and the family.
Applicants wishing to study for the 85 week Midwifery programme can see further details here.
