Bachelor of Midwifery
Griffith University - Logan

Course outline

As Griffith is ranked tied first in Australia for nursing and midwifery in the (2023 Shanghai Ranking Global Ranking of Academic Subjects,) you’ll learn from expert clinicians, researchers and award-winning teachers who lead the field in midwifery education, research and practice. In this degree, you’ll undertake extensive professional practice learning including 2-3 x 8-12 hour shifts per week over 46 weeks each year under the supervision of registered midwives. You will follow 20 women throughout their pregnancy until six weeks after birth, and be on-call to attend the labour and birth – requiring a high level of commitment and flexibility. You will become technically competent and deeply woman-centred with sound clinical judgement. Our blended learning approach includes face-to-face workshops, simulated practice in midwifery laboratories, active online learning and extensive compulsory midwifery practice in a range of settings. Placements are available at a range of sites, including Logan, Redlands, Toowoomba, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. For more course and placement information, visit Bachelor of Midwifery at GU.


All on campus teaching sessions are offered on Logan campus, with some midwifery laboratory sessions also available at Gold Coast and Toowoomba. The program duration is three years. Eligible students may complete the first year part-time over two years. If you are undertaking or considering alternate tertiary studies in order to apply this program for the following intake, to maximise your rank you may need to complete a minimum of 1 year of full-time equivalent of study.
