The School of Allied health Professions and Midwifery at the University of Bradford is looking for a dedicated individual to undertake the role of external examiner for our pre-registration 3-year BSc Midwifery Studies and MSc Midwifery Studies programmes to commence in September 2021. We are currently developing our new curriculum for which Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) approval is due in December 2021 with a proposed start date of September 2022.
