Bachelor of Midwifery

Become a qualified midwife and prepare for a fulfilling career supporting mothers, babies and families.

Discover a fulfilling career safely guiding expectant parents through pregnancy, birth and the weeks that follow.

UQ's Bachelor of Midwifery is a respected and innovative program, developed in consultation with patients, students, midwifery associations and industry partners. The approach to learning includes lectures, enquiry-based workshops and clinical skills, integrating clinical placements in various midwifery settings.

You'll undertake more than 1000 hours of supervised clinical placements in a range of clinical locations, including hospitals and a variety of other healthcare organisations. This includes 20 ‘continuity of care’ experiences where you'll accompany a woman and her family through pregnancy, birth and the postpartum experience.

In your final year, our dedicated placement team will arrange your clinical placement, where you'll apply your theoretical knowledge to practise and develop clinical skills in real-life settings. You may have the opportunity to undertake a placement outside the Brisbane metropolitan area or overseas, subject to funding.

Program highlights

  • Start your practical experience in your first semester in rostered clinical shifts and skills simulations.
  • Complete a Bachelor of Nursing simultaneously as a dual degree and qualify as a nurse with just one more year of study.
  • Begin the transition from student to midwife during extended placements in your final year.
