This programme will provide you with all the skills you need to practise as a midwife. Preventive measures will be an important aspect of your work – one of your tasks will be identifying complications for both mother and baby. You will ensure that essential medical assistance is provided and will know how to perform emergency procedures.
The degree has a strong practical focus, which we think is especially important. Numerous simulation activities enable you to apply your theoretical knowledge directly in class. Each semester you will complete a practice placement, gaining experience in a range of different wards. The elective and compulsory internships in semester 4 can both be done abroad.
As a graduate of our bachelor programme, you will be eligible to practise as a midwife in accordance with the Hebammengesetz (Austrian Midwifery Act). You will hold a professional qualification which meets European standards and enables you to work in other EU countries – a big advantage.
