    Hello

    I am doing access to health and social care at my local college and I am hoping to apply to Plymouth (first choice), Bournemouth, UWE and Oxford Brookes for midwifery. Plymouth is my first choice but I am doubting ill get a place because i would need all Distinctions in biology which is 15 credits

    So far I have only had a week work experience in Maternity and I seen 2 c-sections and trial of forceps delivery. I am now applied for more work experience at another hospital too.

    I am a mature student as I am 21 and i dont drive yet thats why plymouth is my first choice as i want to get placement in my local hospital.

    anyone else applying for 2018 and what work experience does everyone have?

    good luck to everyone applying x

    You've done very well to get actual midwifery experience. It's always good to have more experience, even if it isn't directly related to midwifery. Even a day or two in some different areas can be really useful.

    The work experience thread here has some ideas:

    Hey

    I am 23 and I am currently completing the Access to H.E Health course at Coleg Cambria. I am applying to do Midwifery at either Bangor, Chester, Edge Hill, Stafford and Keele. I have had two assignments back both at grade Distinction and the only work experience I have is working at a care line and I have just started working in a care home.
