Let's deliver more than care. Let's deliver a generation.

The role midwives have in preparing women for the delivery of new life makes them a vital presence during all stages of pregnancy, labour and the early postnatal period.

Every student midwife is important to us and at the University of Central Lancashire we aim to support and encourage you, to develop into a confident and competent midwife.

We have an excellent reputation for educating and training midwives, as well as contributing world-leading research to the field. Studying midwifery you’ll learn from world renowned academics who are all still visible in practice.

Our strong links across the North West ensures you’ll have the opportunity of clinical placements in different settings.
