Midwifery means ‘with woman’. Our NMC-validated Midwifery degree course will prepare you to support the health of woman, their babies and their families. Be there at the start of a beautiful journey. Study full-time in Cambridge, Chelmsford or Peterborough in our true-to-life skill laboratories with inspiring lecturers. Develop your skills further on placements, and graduate ready for a career as a midwife.
Modern midwives do much more than assist with birth. They work closely with other healthcare professionals to support women throughout pregnancy and childbirth.
This course will help you develop into a competent midwife who’s able to work as a team member or leader. Your time will be divided equally between classroom study and supervised placements. You’ll learn to assess individual women and to plan, implement and evaluate care that meets the needs of mother, baby and family. You’ll recognise and respond to factors that affect the physical, emotional and social well-being of mothers and babies, too. And you’ll build essential problem-solving skills while learning to work with professionals from a range of disciplines.
We’re dedicated to the continual improvement of every aspect of healthcare, and to delivering the values set out in the NHS Constitution.
You’ll be linked to one of our eight NHS healthcare trust partners for your placements.
If you study in Cambridge, you’ll do your placement at Cambridge, in Peterborough you’ll do your placement at Huntingdon, Peterborough or Kings Lynn, and in Chelmsford, you’ll do your placement at Chelmsford, Southend, Basildon, Harlow or Colchester.
On campus, you’ll attend lectures Monday-Friday. On placement, you’ll work shifts (including nights, weekends and bank holidays). You’ll have seven weeks’ non-negotiable annual holiday – two weeks over Christmas and New Year, two weeks in spring, and three weeks in summer.
We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it – and they offer hands-on, practical opportunities to learn through work-based projects, internships or placements.
Our course meets the Nursing and Midwifery Council Standards for Pre-Registration Midwifery Education 2009. This means that when you graduate, you can apply to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and start working as a midwife. Most newly qualified midwives join an NHS Trust.
Midwifery brings unique rewards. You’re present at one of the most important moments in people’s lives, helping to safely begin the life of their child. This degree opens up a world of opportunities, including career progression, specialism and postgraduate study.

Where you’ll study
The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
