    Hi,

    I was just wondering whether somebody could help me and give me some advice. I am looking to a apply to an access to he diploma in midwifery course online as i believe i am better suited to it rather than studying at a college.

    However, the courses i have looked at i am not sure whether they are legit or not and i do not want to be wasting my time.

    I have looked at courses on
    -Stonebridge
    -Learndirect
    -Harriet Ellis
    -Distance Learning Centre

    Please could you offer me some help and guidance and also whether you have studied on any of the sites and how the experience was for you.

    Thank you for your help in advance! xxx

    Learn direct tends to be pretty reputable and are a big organisation.
    I havent heard of the others.

    Maybe you can join the RCN forums to see who have used them or they can give you contact details of previous students?

    Might do some digging later.

    Also do check the admission criteria of the universities you intend to apply to.

    Maybe contact some of these student midwives?

    Distance Learn Center is legit. However, the materials provided help you with the quick self assessments, but for the actual assessments you're mostly given questions and one your own for finding answers. Often the actual assessments are only slightly related to what you actually were taught (and by taught, I mean what was covered in the pdf they gave you.) That said, it's an access course, so if it means you can go to uni, go for it. When I spoke to the unis I'm interested in they said it doesn't matter which provider I study with, just my grades.
