As a midwife, you will work together with women and their families to provide the support, advice and guidance they need throughout their pregnancy, as well as during the birth and in the following days. Our 3-year German-language Midwifery bachelor programme will equip you with all the necessary tools, preparing you for hospital-based duties as well as freelance midwifery work.
What to expect from the degree programme
In the first 4 semesters you will acquire a wide range of knowledge in general and midwifery-focused anatomy, physiology and pathology. We will teach you basic midwifery skills, provide you with insights into health promotion and prevention, and develop your academic skills. Building up lots of practical experience will help you get off to a great start in the profession. That’s why you spend one third of your degree on placements at healthcare facilities. The required practical training is part of your total workload in each semester. In semester 4 you have the opportunity to do some of your practical training abroad – and we’ll give you advice and coaching throughout the process.
From the midway point of the programme you will build on your existing skills. This will involve working with fellow students on complex case studies and topics. You will explore and discuss difficult areas such as bereavement and other psychosocial topics, and supervision sessions will help you to effectively process your experiences during the practice placement.
