Midwifery course facilities

graphic of a student quote saying: "Whether it is taking blood for the first time, working out the mechanics of birth, or learning emergency drills, being able to practice in a place where there is always time for questions and piecing together the puzzle makes things click so much faster."

As a midwifery student you’ll use a wide-range of facilities during your studies to ensure you are ready for your clinical placements and practice – practising skills in an environment that simulates midwives’ real-life professional experiences.

Learning by simulation means you will be confident in your ability to apply your knowledge and skills in your day-to-day professional life.
