    Does anyone think it's possible to get into midwifery on three BTEC subsidiary diploma's and an EPQ?

    I am hoping to go into midwifery, 2018 entry.

    Thank you x

    Have you got any work experience? As this would contribute a huge deal.

    I know that midwifery is usually a competitive course to get into but also recognise that (in the UK) following brexit, the number of midwifery applicants has dropped significantly so this may help.

    I spoke to a midwife recently and she said that lots of her colleagues are quitting over fears of being sued - the moment any thing hours wrong nowadays people sue.

    These two reasons above show that perhaps universities will be more open to less qualified applicants in order to fill spaces.

    Thank you, those are some great points to keep in mind.

    Yes, I have done a few months on and off placement at a nursing and residential home as part of one of my BTEC's.

    I have also spoken and met with a few midwives here and there as well as going to an antenatal class and meet the midwife days.

    I believe I have the transferrable skills as long as they look at my personal statement, I'm concerned the university's will just look at my subjects and "turn a blind eye" so to speak; because I am not supported by any Alevel qualifications...
