Your future in midwifery

A degree in midwifery will equip you with the experience, skills and knowledge needed to start your career in this rewarding field. Discover more about our undergraduate Midwifery course and what your future could hold. 

Your future, your choice 

Our midwifery course is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which means that on successful completion of your studies, you’ll have the academic requirements needed to register to work as a midwife.

Midwifery is one of the largest healthcare professions in the UK and is home to a diverse range of roles in hospitals and community settings. There are specialist areas that midwives occupy, including family planning and managing pregnancy in women with long-term conditions. You may also want to explore alternative career paths including education, management, mentoring and research.

Visit the NHS careers website for further information about being a midwife. 

My time at Surrey fully prepared me for life as a qualified practitioner and I’ve now moved back home to the Isle of Man, where I’m working as a Midwife at a local hospital. I’ve brought so many unique and innovative ideas from my time at Surrey to the role and the team I work with have been fully supportive of these and helped me find my feet. It’s such a privilege providing continuity of care to families, in what is such a special moment in their lives. Being with women throughout their pregnancies, births and beyond is so rewarding and there really is nothing else like it. Maddy Taggart, Midwifery (Registered Midwife) BSc
