The BSc (Hons) Midwifery at Lincoln provides the opportunity to study to become eligible to register as a midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Women-centered holistic care is actively encouraged and the course provides the opportunity for students to promote choice and partnership working.
The course aims to encourage students to think critically and apply evidence to underpin their clinical practice. The course is mapped to NMC requirements for the education of student midwives and is underpinned by national policy.
The programme is 50 per cent theory and 50 per cent practice-based. Students have the opportunity to experience a wide range of practice placements. These range from the antenatal to the postnatal period, incorporating intrapartum care and covering the whole childbearing continuum encompassing midwifery and consultant-led care. It examines a wide variety of physical, social and psychological needs. Students can gain knowledge of the transition to parenting and care of the newborn.
Students have the opportunity to undertake clinical practice within a non-midwifery setting, including in a medical, neonatal unit and within a hospital gynaecology ward. Throughout the course, students can learn about how to ensure women are given informed choice and remain at the centre of the decision-making process.
Different modes of assessment are used for different modules of study. For example submitted written work is used to assess grasp of theory and clinical exams are used to assess application of theory to practice.
Practical skills will be assessed whilst students are on placement through the achievement of outcomes designed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council. These are assessed and recorded by the practice mentor.

Lincoln is such a great university. The town is a great mix between the historical old city and a modern, student friendly vibe with plenty of places to eat and drink. Steep Hill has loads of lovely little boutiques and shops for students. There’s a fair few places to go out, not massively hectic but not dead. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and interesting, and the teachers were passionate and helpful, really pushing me to work hard and further my academic studies.
