About this program

Midwifery with NMC Registration

Did you know that 464,437 babies were born in the UK in 2020? (ONS)

Each birth is a unique experience for mother and baby, but midwifery is about so much more than just delivering babies. It is about the professional care of mothers – before, during, and after the birth of their child; helping to keep mothers and babies safe and comfortable during this intimate and life changing experience.

If you have the compassion, care and courage needed, a degree in midwifery will teach you everything you need to know.

The course will be taught out of both Aylesbury and Uxbridge campuses.

Admission requirements

A typical offer will require a UCAS tariff score of: 112 - 136

Or an Access to Midwifery qualification (minimum of 30 Level 3 credits at Distinction, 12 at Merit, and 3 at Pass).

Those whom English is not their first language must achieve a minimum score of 7.0 overall or equivalent for the International English Language Test Score (IELTS).

In addition, you will require five GCSEs including Maths, English and Science at Grade C/4 or above (or a suitable equivalent).

You may find it easier if you have prior knowledge of health, so we prefer if you have relevant A Levels - such as Biology, Health and Social Care, Chemistry, Psychology, Physics, Physical Education, and Sociology. However, it is not essential.

Applicants will also be required to pass an interview.

Program content

Whilst exact course structure is to be confirmed and subject to validation, the NMC standards (NMC 2019) are at the heart of this curriculum. This ensures that during your time at Buckinghamshire New University you will gain skills that enable you to provide effective, evidence based and person-centred care as a qualified midwife. The degree programme will be delivered over 3 years.

The curriculum will also build up your knowledge and depth of normal physiological processes to facilitate pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. Upon completion of the course you will be able to optimise normal physiological processes, support safe physical, psychological, social cultural and spiritual situations, work to promote positive outcomes and be able to anticipate and prevent complications.

Program delivery

The course will be taught out of both Aylesbury and Uxbridge campuses, with access to excellent simulation suites on both sites. This includes up-to-date equipment allowing for the simulation of midwifery skills to enable the learner to develop in a safe environment.

Whilst studying with us you will also use our BucksAnywhere web service, which provides access to many of the software applications you use for learning and studying. BucksAnywhere can be used from your own device or from a University owned PC or laptop, from any location.

Career paths

Throughout your time with us we’ll support you on the route to your chosen career. We’ll help you to develop crucial skills, encouraging you to become enterprising, employable and good leaders. We also help you find employment after graduation. Have a look at our Careers and Employability pages to find out more.

With the implementation of the Better Births report (2016) recommendation of “continuity of care and carer”, you will have the opportunity to join teams of midwives which will care for women across the continuum. This means you will have the ability to work in the community, ward areas and labour wards whilst providing continuity to the women you care for.

Some midwives may also choose to become part of the core staff required in hospitals and support the maternity services that way.

There is a vast array of specialist roles which midwives continue their career in, including but not exhaustive to:

  • Diabetes
  • Safeguarding
  • Bereavement
  • Vulnerable client groups
  • Consultant midwives
  • Education
  • Multiple pregnancy midwives
  • Specialist screening.

You can also study for a postgraduate course or choose from a range of short courses to continue your professional development.
