The Bachelor of Midwifery is specifically designed to prepare you for entry to professional midwifery practice. You will develop the skills, knowledge and attitude necessary to provide high quality care through safe and effective midwifery practice in accordance with the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council Midwife standards for practice. Study areas include anatomy and physiology, midwifery theory and practice, primary healthcare, women’s health, mental health and psychosocial sciences. Graduates will be equipped to work in multi-disciplinary teams and in partnership with women to contribute to healthier outcomes for mother and baby.

Assessment methods

Students complete a wide variety of assessment items during the course including written exams, oral exams, academic writing, clinical and practical exams.

Teaching methods

The course is underpinned by an innovative, experiential learning curriculum focusing on woman-centred care in practice. The course features a variety of clinical and community experiences, which will expose students to the varied aspects of midwifery practice resulting in graduates able to function to the full scope of contemporary midwifery practice.

Career opportunities

Midwives are responsible for the care of women and babies during pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, labour, birth and the early infancy period. They provide direct clinical care and support for healthy women and babies and work collaboratively with doctors and other members of a health care team when there are risks or complications.

Registered midwives may practise midwifery in various capacities in public and private hospitals and community, maternity and neonatal health care settings in urban, rural and remote areas. They can practise as group practice midwives, clinical midwifery consultants, midwifery educators, midwifery unit managers, community midwives, researchers, and as independent midwives (with further training). Upon completion of this course, graduates are eligible for graduate-year placement opportunities in any Australian state and in New Zealand.

Professional placement

To meet the practice requirements of a registered midwife, you undertake approximately 1,000 hours of supervised placements and will attend antenatal and postnatal assessments/visits with women; provide direct care to women during labour; assist women during birth and support women and their babies with diverse needs across pregnancy, labour and birth, and the postnatal period.

Please be aware labour and birth can be unpredictable and occur at any time of the day or night. Therefore the continuity-of-care component in the program requires you to be ‘on call’. The professional experience rostered placement may occur ‘away’ from your campus and place of residence. Students are responsible for any cost incurred for travel and accommodation.

Professional experience placements require students to fulfil certain pre-requisites prior to attending any placements (e.g. a working with children check and National Police Certificate). Prior to applying for this course, please consider the important information regarding these requirements.

Professional recognition

The Bachelor of Midwifery is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia and provides the necessary qualification for graduates to be eligible to register and practise as a midwife in Australia.

Further training is required to work as a privately practising midwife.

Please note: In order to register to practice, the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency [AHPRA] standards for English language must be met. See the AHPRA web site for further information.
