Supporting Midwives at the start of their career

Supporting Midwives at the start of their career

This fund supports the education and training of student midwives and is available to all those studying at Kingston University and St George’s University of London.

Becoming a midwife is such a rewarding, yet challenging, career and all our student midwives have secured employment within three months of registration as a midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Kingston and St George’s is ranked top in London for Midwifery in the Guardian University Guide 2015 and 2016. Our student midwives experience excellent learning opportunities both in the university and in the clinical setting.

They gain hands-on experience with mothers and babies with full supervision and mentoring of qualified midwives and health professionals in a variety of leading hospital and community settings throughout their undergraduate degree, or postgraduate diploma, programme.

Student midwives do need to occassionally attend conferences or short elective placements across the United Kingdom during the course of their studies to widen their midwifery knowledge and experience, which is often at their own expense.

This fund is available for any student midwife who can apply for up to £100 to help with these costs. As part of the application process, they will need to demonstrate the impact this additional learning opportunity will have on their professional development as a midwife.

One bursary is awarded for each individual student midwife.

Midwives learn vital skills

Donations of any amount can support the learning of future midwives in the NHS.

Gifts of £100 will be very much appreciated as this can be awarded to one student to go to a conference or travel to a placement.
