University of York, UK
Anna has a further offer of acceptance from which to choose. She has learned that her application to attend the University of York and study for the Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Midwifery Practice has been successful.
The degree course philosophy focuses on both the art and science of midwifery. Alongside developing an understanding of the biology of pregnancy and childbirth, students gain the interpersonal skills needed to work with women, families, and colleagues, and to provide compassionate care in a variety of social and cultural contexts.
Through a range of academic and practical modules midwifery students gain skills and knowledge to enable them to provide evidence-based holistic, person-centred care. The teaching and learning cohorts are small, meaning students have all the support they need to progress through the course. By the time they graduate, they will be ready to become a leader in contemporary midwifery.
After completing this degree, graduates are eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the professional regulatory body for nurses and midwives in the UK. The course is also fully accredited by the Baby Friendly Initiative (BFI) which sets standards to facilitate effective parent–baby relationships and choices regarding infant feeding. www.york.ac.uk
