    I have sat my exam during late summer so I don't know my undergraduate grade. I have done my first degree in genetics and now I really want to be a midwife. I am googling post grad midwifery but I'm getting really confused as why there are post grad nursing but no post grad midwifery. Post grad midwifery only seems for either people that have studied nursing and want to change to midwifery or people that have been out of midwifery and need a top-up. Not unless I am getting really confused?

    Whats with the zero funding does the UK not want any midwives? hahahaha

    Hi, I'm not sure why there isn't a PGDip midwifery course, I'm not sure if the demand is there. There is rumour that the conversion course for nurses is going to be stopped or phased out, perhaps there is little demand for it amongst registered nurses.
    Would you consider doing the three year midwifery degree? Although the bursary has stopped you would still be able to get another student loan, and many student nurses and midwives do bank care assistant work to earn some money while studying to help with bills etc.
