Hi All,

I'm a mature student applying for BMid at Bangor, Chester and Shrewsbury (Via Staffordshire Uni). Application all done and reference sorted, just waiting for D-Day (in September) to pay and apply via UCAS.

I started my Midwifery degree in 2012 and completed 1.5 years, but fell pregnant and discontinued in 2014. 5 years later i'm restarting the whole thing, and feel just as nervous, if not more so. eeeek.

Does anyone one know what the process is at these universities - invited for interview/Maths/English exam etc.

Hi @RuthiePeg

We're excited to hear that you'll be applying to Staffs. Regarding the process, I've just dropped the course leader a quick email about this to ensure I give you the correct info - when I have it, I'll pop it back on here.

Please give me a shout if I can help with anything else.

Thanks

Amy

I’m not sure really, if I decide to stay close to home, I will apply for the university of Surrey, maybe Northumbria if I decide to go further. How about you?

Open days attended:
have you done any work experience
Already have a degree 2:2 (marketing)

Studied 1.5 years of a midwifery degree at Cardiff (fell pregnant, got married and had another child (2 total) - time lapse of 5 years, hence the need to start from beginning).
Work experience (midwifery related): 1.5 years of course, delivered 16 babies, placements in Community, Midwifery Led Units, Labour Ward, antenatal and post natal wards during time on course at Cardiff University.

I'm hoping all this will at least get me an interview. Why am I so nervous?!!!

Talk about any transferable communication skills and that it is woman focused care (not babies). Talk about why you want to become a midwife.Talk about related journals you have read (and continue to read). Mention some NICE guidelines around perinatal pathways or postnatal protocols to show your enthusiasm in the subject.Any mention any experiences you’ve had be it work experience, personal experiences.Hope that helps.

Hi RuthiePeg

I've had a response from the Midwifery Course Leader. Hope this helps.

If you need any further information, just contact [email protected]

"Hi, I would recommend all potential applicants to attend an Open Day to gain knowledge and understanding surrounding the programme and making the best application possible.

In essence, application is through the usual UCAS process. We have two midwifery cohorts each year at the moment so applicant need to be sure which site they are making the application for their chosen site.

All applications are reviewed by a member of the midwifery academic team and suitable applicants are invited to a recruitment day. We have a number planned between Oct 19 – Feb 20.

Details of admission criteria are available on our web site."


Kind regards,

^Shaun

Make sure to click the blue "watch" button at the top of the thread to make sure you get notifications - if says un-watch then you're already watching the thread. :woo:
