Midwifery course facilities
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.
