    I heard back from Napier on the 17th of March and was invited to an interview. I went for an Interview for Robert Gordon on the 15th of Feb but still haven't heard back yet. I know the unconditionals have gone out, anyone got a conditional or a rejection yet?

    You need to look at the particular requirements for each uni, you'll find it on their website. Also I wouldn't apply for midwifery if you're not 110% sure, it's so difficult to get into and there's a lot of passionate applicants. It doesn't sound like you know a lot about midwifery if you don't even know what specialist pathways there are. I think you need to go away and do a bit of research into the subject and see if it's really for you

    Hey, Iv just been accepted for midwifery at Kings college London. You need to have your GCSE's and A levels or equivalent (Such as an Access course- which I'm doing!) including biology as a subject. If you haven't got these you could do an access course which will give you these grades to get in. This is if you're over 19 though! Try looking at the entry requirements on the Kings website and if there is an alternative. Hope this helps!

    Hi. I am due to start an access course in September to get into uni to do midwifery. I'l be 32 in January and I have a toddler. I'm getting a little bit scared after reading so much negativity around the career.
    I've read that some midwives haven't been able to get jobs and some that did have jobs, abandoned ship. I'm wanting to better myself and have a financially secure future for my little family. I'm losing sleep over what I've read. Are there any midwifes that have newly qualified that can share their experiences? Also any that have juggled the degree with small children, any input would be much appreciated.
    I think you're on the wrong thread, this is for applicants who are starting this September. Try studentmidwife.net as they might be able to answer your question as there's a broader range of people on there x

    I've pretty much bought everything haha! Anatomy and physiology for midwives, ballieres midwives dictionary, all midwifery essentials, Oxford handbook of midwifery, plum stethoscope, fob watch and Clarkes unloops! Also my student midwife planner from the happy planner company came yesterday! My offer is firmed and unconditional so I'm going mad x
    hi, if you don't mind me asking, how did you get an unconditional offer?

    hi, if you don't mind me asking, how did you get an unconditional offer?
    It's because I already had the grades before applying as I didn't get in first time around. So I finished my A levels, got AABB and applied again x

    Hi! I am aiming to apply this year to start next year, I'm soo nervous about not getting onto the course as I have no professional experience, do I have any hope of getting in as it's so selective anyway! I'm also nervous about the shifts and childcare, don't suppose anyone has any idea what the shifts are like? I'll be applying to uni of beds and know their uni and placements are split through the week as opposed to nursing which is block placements.
    Any advice/chat would be great!
    Good luck everybody x

    You don't need direct care experience as long as you show the transferable skills you have from your current job. I did a lot of volunteering on maternity wards but I still talked about the skills I had acquired through my job in retail that I would use in midwifery. Shifts are totally random usually as you would follow the shifts of your mentor but unis are very understanding of this as a lot of their students are mature x
