Studying Midwifery

What to look forward to

Your learning will be supported by our state-of-the-art simulation ward and industry leading equipment, including our Lucina Virtual Reality (VR) equipment.

We’re focused not only on preparing you for graduation through theory-based lessons and skills training, but also supporting you emotionally and building your resilience to help you better care for your patients in the future.

Prepare for practice with our state-of-the-art labs

Your degree is split evenly between theory and skills training on campus and your practical placement with our partner hospitals. Our simulation area on campus will provide you with all the skills training you will need to feel prepared for your first day of work.

You’ll get access to our simulation equipment, which includes our life-like mannequins who can simulate symptoms and conditions.

Our Lucina VR equipment is some of the most innovative in the industry, and will help you gain hands-on experience and visualise issues during the birthing process before you go on placement or enter the workforce.

For a look at our Clinical Skills & Simulation Area, check out our virtual tour below.

  • We're back on campus for teaching

    Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.

    We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you:

    • You’ll be on campus for seminar group work and skills training in small groups which will provide a safe space for you to gets hands on experience in our state-of-the-art simulation wards as well as work with fellow students and tutors

    • You’ll be taught online through both live lectures where you can ask questions of tutors and lecturers or through pre-recorded lectures that you can watch at your own time.
  • Innovative teaching that's enhanced by technology

    Our teaching and learning approach is evidence-based and designed using feedback from students and staff during the pandemic and in previous years.

    For example, our students particularly liked having the option to watch lectures online as they felt their work/home balance was better.

    We also use technology to enhance your learning and put you in control, like polls, virtual whiteboards, and quizzes during lectures so you can interact live.

    Tech also allows us to add innovative new ways of teaching into the mix like how we’ve worked with Oxford Medical to ensure you can get access to our virtual reality scenarios from home.

  • Get support from our specialist team to find the right placement for you

    One of the most important aspects of your course will be your time spent on placement.

    We work very hard to find the right placement for you in accordance to professional body requirements for your chosen field of nursing. The programme team and NHS Trust partners facilitate preparation for placement sessions and our partner NHS Trusts provide inductions for practice placements. Our Specialist Placement Department is here to help you access our prestigious placement opportunities with our NHS Trust partners and independent health and social care sectors within North Central London and ensure you are ready for life after graduation.

  • Study amongst staff and students who are at the forefront of the field

    We continue to strive to update our teaching and training methods based on the best research and technology available. It’s why we partnered with Oxford Medical Simulation to be the first university in the UK to pioneer their virtual reality headsets in our practical training.

    Along with staying up to date with the latest teaching methods, we also strive to give back to our community and have staff that continue to stay active in the field. One such example is senior lecturer and skills training staff member, Sarah Chitongo, who has won several awards for her innovative research in BAME mothers and children.

    From our innovative simulation ward and robust placement programme to our ambitious and innovative staff, we know that studying midwifery at Middlesex University will prepare you for a successful career.

    No matter your specialism of interest or career goals, we are here to help you along your journey and ensure you are equipped to practice in an ever-changing world.
