About the course

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.

Future prospects

The aim of the programme is to develop a midwife who is able to deliver the best possible care to women and their families.

It provides opportunities for students to develop their full potential and fosters commitment to continuing education. Graduates at the end of the programme will be ready to undertake the role and responsibilities of the midwife.

Midwives leave the Faculty and go on to the wide range of career opportunities available for them. Students are prepared to work anywhere in the UK and throughout the world. 100% of full-time students on this programme find employment or progress to further study within six months of finishing their course (Higher Education Statistics Agency 2017).

With an extensive portfolio of NHS-funded continuing professional development opportunities, students can expect to maintain their relationship with their ‘alma mater’- all midwives need to be able to mentor the next generation of midwives so the mentorship module is usually the first port of call. From then midwives can study at master’s level using our flexible framework to undertake education in key areas of practice.
