    Hello,I have completed one year of an adult nursing degree and I'm looking into the conversion course from nursing to midwifery. Since I have got my nursing degree funded I wondered if I would be able to get a student loan for the conversion course?Many thanks in advance!

    Hi, I think the best thing to do is look at the websites of the universities you would be looking at applying to (I know only a handful of universities offer the midwifery conversion course though), if information on funding is not available on their websites, it might be worth contacting their admissions department to ask.
    It’s worth keeping in mind that as there are lots of changes going on with funding of undergraduate & postgraduate nursing & midwifery, it may change again before you finish your degree.
    I hope this helps a bit.

    That's very true, everything does keep changing! I will contact an admissions department and see what they say, thank you for your advice!!

    The conversion course is for qualified nurses so to do it you would need to finish your degree first. You may be able to transfer your credits over to a midwifery course though. Your best shot is asking at the university you are currently studying at.
