The Postgraduate Diploma in Midwifery (Short Programme) from The University of Hull is ideal for adult nurses on the NMC Register at Level 1, who hold a BSc degree in nursing. This programme is full-time, commencing in February each year.

About

At the end of the Midwifery (Short Programme) from The University of Hull, you will be a qualified midwife, capable of providing a safe, competent and satisfactory experience for the childbearing woman, the baby, and the family.

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

At the University of Hull, the Faculty of Health Sciences has strong engagement with patients, people who use services and their carers and friends. This ensures the programmes remain contemporary and relevant. 

The 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. 

Applicants must therefore be able to work in the UK without restriction and we are unable to admit students who require a student visa.

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 achieve 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.
