    Hi,So I was just wanting to see if anyone had taken the Access to HE healthcare practitioner course and then gone on to study midwifery at university? Just so I know that people have done it and it is possible?I know a few universities ask for specific Access to HE midwifery course but I cant find what the differences are in what the course cover.ThanksMolly

    Hey, I’m doing an Access Health Science course at the moment which is aimed towards nursing/midwifery students (although I’m doing OT!) but we have quite a few midwifery hopefuls! If you have any questions let me know

    Hi, I did an access to higher education (allied health professions) course & im now studying adult nursing. Many students from my access course have gone on to midwifery.
    I wouldn’t worry about the technical name of the course, you can double check the universities you want to apply to will accept it, it appears a lot of colleges are grouping all health professions together to offer one course, the actual subjects you are studying are what the university are interested in. They normally want a certain amount of credits in a science, which it sounds like the course you mentioned will cover.
    To be sure I’d contact the universities you want to apply to and confirm they will accept that course, even if they specify access to midwifery on their websites.
    Good luck with everything.
