What you will study

This course is delivered over just 85 weeks, in recognition of the skills and knowledge you will have already gained during your nursing registration. It concentrates on the specific range of subjects you will need to learn to become a registered midwife. Comprising large amounts of both theory and clinical skills teaching, you'll gain the scientific knowledge base and practical abilities for your future midwifery practice.

With teaching based on the site of a major hospital, you'll experience regular contact with other working health professionals who may bring their practical knowledge to your learning on occasions. You will have joint learning opportunities with other allied health students in our simulation suites and classrooms.

We have established links with a wide range of practice partners, so your placement facilitator will aim to give you clinical experience with service users in different hospital and community units. But even though you could be away from the main university site, you'll still have the support of the team here.

As a nurse you'll know the importance of teamwork. We pride ourselves on being a very supportive team and we'll take an individual and personal interest in your progress, wherever you are on the course. Kingston University has a well-established and highly effective Student Life Services team, which could be especially useful if you're coming back to study after a period working.
