Welcome to the Division of Midwifery
Our highly regarded Division of Midwifery is part of the School of Nursing, Midwifery & Physiotherapy. We have an excellent reputation for teaching and research excellence. We provide a range of undergraduate and postgraduate midwifery courses, enabling student midwives, and helping those already qualified, to further develop their skills.
For more than a decade there have been significant initiatives in shared learning with midwifery and medical students at undergraduate level as well as with experienced midwives and specialist obstetric registrar trainees.
Academic midwives are based on the same sites as many of their obstetric colleagues which helps to facilitate collaboration in education, practice and research. Find out more about becoming a midwife.
Student fees and finance
Students on pre-registration midwifery courses (funded by the NHS and leading to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council) will usually have their tuition fees paid in full and receive financial support in the form of a bursary and access to a student loan.
The Department of Health has indicated that a new package of financial support will take effect from September 2012 and only apply to students who begin training on or after this date.
Eligible students will receive a non-means tested grant of £1,000, a means tested bursary of up to £4,395 and the non-means tested Reduced Rate student loan of up to £2,324. Different rates of means tested bursary and loan will apply according to where a student lives or studies. More information can be found on the NHS Careers website. To be eligible you must have Home Status and meet the NHS and SLC criteria.
