Midwifery is a rewarding career and at the University of Central Lancashire, we aim to help you develop into a confident and competent Midwife, effectively supporting women and their families through pregnancy, birth and beyond. Using a case based learning approach to your studies, you will be able to access research and evidence based guidance to support you in becoming an autonomous practitioner. The focus on the course is based on women and family centred care, where we will support you to develop all the skills needed to provide essential support, care and advice for women and their families. You will spend approximately 50% of your time in theory and 50% of your time in clinical practice, allowing you to put theory into practice, within a safe and welcoming environment. Throughout the course you will be supported by lecturers and clinical midwife mentors, who will support you through this challenging yet exciting course.

UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
