    So I have a level 2 in health and social care.

    I'd like to do a access course into midwifery and nursing which I'm told will take 1 year to complete.

    Here I'm getting confused do I apply from the open university for this access course and when it's completed apply for a place at university?

    How difficult is the maths test in the access module?

    How difficult did everyone find the access into midwifery and nursing?

    My nearest university's are Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, Shrewsbury.

    I also have 2 kids, just wondering how I'd cope my youngest will start nursery soon part time.

    How did everyone cope if you do have kids with assignments etc.


    How many days a week would you go into college for the access course?

    I am based in Telford if that matters.

    Seriously confused! Lol


    Thanks

    The OU don't offer the access course, but if you're wanting to apply to do the nursing degree at the OU then you don't need to have completed an access course first. I'd suggest you talk to an OU adviser about this.

    There is no attendance at the OU unless you have a module with face to face tutorials which may be once a month.

    But when I went back to college to do my A-levels a few years ago I got to know some access people. They were in every day of the week, but not always all day and assignments are every month or so, but each module has different dates. The beginning maths test was around GCSE level.
