Our Student Stories

"It is an intensive degree with half of the course taught at university and the other half in practice settings, working with midwives in community teams, midwifery-led birth centres and hospital maternity units. The course has given me the balance to continue in education as well as get a taste of the real world of work. Although it's a difficult course I know I'm at the right degree and I enjoy every second of bringing new joy into the world every day as well as supporting mothers and their families through some of the most difficult times of their lives."
