A rewarding career with excellent prospects

Most of the recently qualified BMid Midwifery students at Swansea University have been successful in attaining midwifery posts in different maternity units across England and Wales. Other alumni have been successful in becoming Specialist Midwives in London, winning prestigious research scholarships, and working globally.

Promotion prospects for Swansea University graduate midwives are very good, with midwives commonly achieving Band 6 grading (Agenda for Change) after one year of continuous practice as a midwife in the NHS.

The Swansea University BMid (Hons) Midwifery qualification is highly valued in other countries and could give you the opportunity to work abroad in Australia, Canada or New Zealand.
