Bachelor of Midwifery

University of South Australia

The Bachelor of Midwifery provides students with the practical skills and knowledge needed to provide care, support and advice to women during pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatally. There is a strong focus on theory and practical experience, and students learn in a unique, clinican led, on campus simulated hospital and health service. Students have the opportunity to practice their skills through real-life scenarios and are confidently prepared for clinical practice. The simulated hospital environment fully led by practicing registered nurses and midwives (clinicians), known as the Horizon Hospital and Health Service (HHHS), is the only one of its kind in South Australia.
