Course content

The Post Graduate Diploma in Midwifery is ideal for adult nurses on the NMC Register at Level 1, who hold a BSc degree in nursing. This is a part-time programme with start dates available in January and September. 

At the University of Hull, our Faculty of Health and Social Care 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. The course commences in February every year. 

You will receive experience in a range of maternity care settings, including clients' homes, community clinics, hospitals and midwifery led birth units. 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.

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.

Midwifery requires people who are enthusiastic, compassionate and understanding, knowledgeable and level-headed, who are responsive and can think decisively. As well as developing these qualities, this programme aims to equip you with the ability to apply biological, social, political, and cultural perspectives to the context of childbearing.

This programme provides opportunities for you to develop your full potential and fosters commitment to continuing education. At the end of the programme, you 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.
