BSc Midwifery

Midwifery is a satisfying yet challenging profession that allows you to care for pregnant women and their families before, during and after childbirth. Our programme will provide you with all the clinical knowledge and skills you need to excel as a Midwife. It is a great course if you have an interest in the physical, psychological and overall process of pregnancy and birth, and are caring and responsible by nature.

When you join UEA, you will be part of a supportive community of like-minded students, working together to gain first-hand experience and providing first-class care.
We will support you to become the very best midwife you can be.
