    It may be a little early to find many people looking to apply for 2019. Generally people start looking for 2019 threads around June/July time when people are starting their personal statements.

    Im doing my access to nursing course at Kingston College

    I'm hoping to the nursing course at Kingston Uni but will be looking at a few other uni's that are relatively close as can't go too far due to my family

    I wanted to do Midwifery. In my country of orgin Nursing and Midwifery is done as one course so have options between careers. So here unfortunately I had to choose.

    Im still in shock about the fees tho. Almost unbelievable how costly it is. Im actually looking for work to try and save up that money while I do my access.

    We used to do a top up option where you could study nursing for 3 years and then do a midwifery course for 1.5 years and then you'd be qualified as both but that's been pretty much stopped now (think a couple of unis might still offer the option but don't think its many any more) think it was done to ensure that when someone choose that course they did so because they were dedicated to it

    Same with the fees they are pricey and daunting but least it should mean the people doing the course are people that really want to do that course and that career path

    why do you need to do access again even after 1st yr nursing? can you not just continue?

    Yeah it's a shame they stopped doing it

    I'm currently a stay at home mum, wanted to do this for years but wasn't really possible when my kids were younger but now they're all at school I feel able to go for it now

    What about you?

    I'm starting an access course in September, but applying for child nursing in Sept 2019 rather than adult. Which universities are you considering?
