Hi everyone,

Anyone applying to UWS for midwifery starting in 2020? This will be my third time applying. First time in 2015 when I was unsuccessful but then offered a place from reserve list which I unfortunately couldn’t accept, second time last year and I was offered an interview but then found out I was pregnant with my 3rd child so had to withdraw my application and so I will now be reapplying for 2020 intake! Really hoping it will be third time lucky for me. Best of luck to anyone else applying x

Best of luck to you!! How did you find the interview process? The last time I interviewed it was 1 to 1 so I’m a bit worried about the idea of a group interview. What course are you doing at college? I have been out of education for 9 years since I graduated from uni so you are not alone on that one x

I found it quite intense. It’s hard to get your passion across. You get 5 mins to discuss a picture and then there is a 10 minute group discussion. I’m gonna be doing a PDA in developing professional practice in health and social care for maternity support and also volunteering with home start and my local hospital. X

I was hoping you were going to say it’s not too bad... sounds like u have fab experience under ur belt 😊 how did u organise volunteering at your local hospital? Is it on a maternity ward? I am a breastfeeding peer supporter so I volunteer on postnatal wards helping new mums with feeding and at baby cafes x

I emailed the recruitment head as the website wasn’t working and they just emailed me a form to fill in and send back I got the information just from the nhs website. You can ask to be only on the maternity floor but being anywhere in the hospital is good experience. Aw that’s great experience I was gonna do the breastfeeding support but they don’t take any more volunteers until jan next year so won’t be able to put it on my personal statement. Xx

Wishaw. I’m doing trying with home start at the end of August. It’s not so much as midwifery experience but it’s helping families with young children only a couple hours a week. I’m looking forward to it. Were you at the open day or the midwifery workshop at uws last year?

Sounds great 😊 even though it’s not completely related to midwifery, there will be so many transferable skills u can talk about. I organised to volunteer as a maternity meet and greet at wishaw hospital last year but after they organised my PVG etc I kept trying to get in touch with them about a start date and no one ever got back to me 👎🏼 Yeh I went to the open day and workshop last year and loved it! I’m going to the open day again this year incase they take names for another workshop or anything as I don’t want to miss it. Will you be going this year? Hey jjw! Best of luck with ur application 😊 will this be your first time applying? X

Aw that would of been a great experience if they got back to you about it. I’m gonna go again as well. I thought the open day was really well organised and could try different things and get a good look around and the workshop was really good too. Think I will be a lot calmer this time if I get an interview I was so nervous last time. I filled everything in my UCAS in so far except my personal statement 😂 have you had you baby yet Terri1990?

I seen on the chat for this years intake a lot saying they weren’t gonna be using the reserve list which is such a shame for everyone who’s worked so hard. Hopefully next year is the year for you xx
