One of my friends has been rejected from all of her choices to do midwifery this year. Can she apply for nursing for the next cycle instead?

Would this go against her? Does anyone have any success stories?

Nursing and midwifery have very high instances of rejection. Could she take anything else. Also has she looked at taking more midwifery courses through ucas extra. She could try one at a time and possibly get a post and she could try that for 2 months before opting for another choice.

If I were her and didn’t want to do a full gap year, I would research courses that start in January. They may also offer the same for midwifery, but she could organise volunteering/work for a couple of months before she starts in January so she doesn’t have to take a full gap year.
She should work on her grades for now. And, most importantly only apply for something she wants to do!

Sorry for the third post in a row but make sure she emails the uni for feedback from interviews if she had any

Thank you for the replies so far. She basically said, once she had sent her application off - she doubted midwifery, as her background is in caring (she has some care experience). Feedback confirmed her doubts, as they questioned her committment to the midwifery role? Perhaps her personal statement reflected this...... Going off feedback, could she apply in September for nursing instead. Even though she was rejected from Midwifery this cycle? Cx

She could also wait and apply for a place on a nursing course through clearing which opens in Summer for Universities. You can apply for any course that has spaces via clearing as long as you haven’t already applied for it. So if she has been rejected for midwifery she could still apply to unis via clearing for nursing courses that have spaces in clearing. Clearing is typically the start of July to end of October.

Yes she can apply next year for Nursing with a different PS but this also has high rejection rates so it is worth being prepared for. She could look at different roles in the health service or outside. She could even apply for nursing now under extra and she could ask the university whether they would accept an alternative Personal Statement related to nursing but she needs to de aware of the risk of rejection Ring the university to see if they are still taking applications and whether it would be worth her applying. She can check ucas course search for courses with vacancies first and act on that.
