University Of Cumbria Midwifery

Being a midwife is a rewarding and exciting profession. If you have the drive and dedication to become a successful midwife, then we have the course to give you the knowledge and skills you need to get started. We teach you how to place women at the centre of care, assessing their needs and planning their care with the insight to refer them to other relevant health professionals when required.Our placement opportunities allow you to put your skills into practice, gaining on the job experience that will prove invaluable to your career. You’ll be given a friendly base for studying the theory of the trade, supported by midwife mentors and link lecturers in classrooms, as well as online facilities if you’re learning at a distance. You’ll be in constant contact with your tutors and other students to help improve your learning, putting you in the right position to move into professional midwifery.

2017 Entry

From 2017 the government will cease to provide bursaries for undergraduate NHS courses. Students will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs, rather than getting an NHS grant. This information is based on the understanding provided by The Council of Deans for Health and may be subject to change as further details are released by the government.

How we can support you

If you enrol onto an undergraduate NHS programme in 2017, we’ll cover the costs of your:

  • Uniform
  • DBS check**
  • Occupational Health check
  • Travel costs for placements of up to £300 each year

This is in addition to any government support agreed.

**Paid on successful enrolment onto course
