How we make a difference

Midwifery programmes enable students to integrate practice, education and research, developing competence to work in partnership with women and their families, delivering high quality, evidence-based and compassionate care.  The lecturing team is highly motivated, nationally and internationally renowned. Programme Leader Lesley Daniels talks about the type of students they are looking for and the experience of study and placements in Midwifery at Leeds.

UNICEF accreditation

Leeds was one of the first Midwifery courses in the UK to be accredited by the UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative. Leeds Midwifery graduates will be able to translate their first class knowledge and skills into high quality, research-informed support for breastfeeding women and their infants and to support the promotion of breastfeeding at home and abroad. 

Respected graduates
