    I would just prepare for the obvious questions like 'why do you want to be a midwife?' and anything else you think is obvious as it takes the pressure off to have the 'easy ones' sorted. They can't expect you to know in detail about midwifery but to have an idea of what it entails. The questions may therefore be centred around subjects you do at school or moral/ethical questions.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    When i went for my interview for law...i prepared by reading as much around the subject as possible. So for you, as well as thinking of good answers to the basic "why midwifery?" questions, i'd suggest reading as much on the subject as you can. Unfortunately, i don't really know if there are journals you could read on the subject?? The best thing though is to make it clear in the interview that they can tell how much you really want to do the course.

    Hope it goes well...

    I agree with the above - read around the subject as much as possible, esp. troublesome births, they may try and ask you what you'd do in a particular situattion.
    Also, make yourself look as commited to the subject as possible. Midwifery is a subject no-one chooses to do half-heartedly and therefore all the applicants will be dedicated. Try to give yourself an edge. Before my philosophy interview at Cam i joined the Royal institute of philosophy. Just little things like that to set you apart from the crowd. In a good way though of course - lol, don't attend in nothing but sexy lingerie - it'll certainly set you apart but your chances of acceptance will be lowered! Unless of course they fancy you. Oh! i started off well, but this last bit of advice isn't much cop!

    Sorry!
