    Go to www.studentmidwife.net they have a fab forum designed to support studenst all the way from applying to getting asjob.

    It is exceptionaly hard to get a place if you do not know what you are up against - eg NEVER say babies it will get you kicked out.

    Hello, I've applied for Midwifery this year and there's a few things that you should take into consideration before you apply. Firstly, I would not recommend just applying to one university. Most people apply to 5 universities and still manage to only get 1 offer and many don't even get offered a place first time. Staffordshire in particular has an extremely small cohort of 17 this year, making it extremely difficult to get a place with so many applicants. The general ratio is about 30 applicants to 1 place. This means that not only do you have to get at least the minimum entry req. you will also need an original and very good personal statement as well as relevant work experience. This is just so you can get selected for interview. To pass the interview you will need to know a lot about current midwifery news, NHS policies and reforms, ethical considerations and show a real passion for the career. Hope that helps, good luck

    I sent my UCAS off today for Staffordshire University (as well as 4 other uni;s) in order to start Midwifery in September 2014.
    I have all my GCSE's at A*-C Grade
    5 A2 Levels at A*-D level
    and I am also on an access course.

    I have a fair bit of experience such as early pregnancy assessment units, neo-natal care, pregnancy yoga, birthing partner etc

    So I am just hoping a praying that I get a place
