Hi Nadia,I’m looking to do Midwifery at City University, it would mean sooo much to me to get in! I have a telephone interview in a week. Can you give me an idea of what they might ask or how i can prepare? This is my chance and I cant afford to blow it. Please, any advice is much appreciated!

Hey,
Firstly I would like to say congratulations on getting through to the interview stage! Well done you!
The questions can vary to questions such as this;
1) Why have you picked to study midwifery?
2) Why have you chosen City to study Midwifery?
3) Do you know the role of a midwife?
4) Do you have any experience in the health sector that you would like to share?
You may also get questions based on made up scenarios and how you would handle a situation, (there's no right and wrong answer for tis, it's just your personal way of dealing with a situation).

What I will say is answer honestly, and do your research on the midwifery in general, and the course at City so you have the knowledge to help you answer the questions.

Good luck!

Nadia

Hey,
Congratulations on receiving your offers! It's a big, deal you must be super proud!

As a City student studying Children's Nursing you may call me biased but I love studying here, because of the atmosphere created by both the staff (lecturers), current students and everyone who works within the university, it creates such a positive environment which makes it a pleasure to study here.

Now onto why I think City stands out from other universities especially when studying children's nursing;

1) We have such great links with many trusts nationwide which means all your placements will be in areas that have a high reputation in providing the best healthcare to patients whilst also being super diverse, and your placements can vary to hospital settings to community. Our relationships include leading hospitals and trusts including Bart’s Health NHS Trust, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the East London NHS Foundation Trust and Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

2) The way the course is set out really enables you to become the most confident nurse you can be! Many universities send students out to placement straight away, however with nursing at City, they prepare you with the theory first in terms of lectures, seminars and teaching for the first couple of months, and once the theory is completed they then send you out onto placement. I find this has been so helpful, as I felt like I had some knowledge when going to placement, as opposed to no knowledge.

3) Our facilities are amazing. Here at City we have mock hospital wards and hospital equipment for our practical sessions and to practice our skills, and I find this so great because everything we do in these mock hospital wards feels so real life like, which helps us as students understand how it will really be like on placement.

4) For me I have found the support at City has been immense, you never feel as if you are alone if you need help as all the staff are really friendly and approachable and always willing to help whenever you need them to!

Instead of me writing way more reasons way I am going to attach a YouTube link below from City's channel about my experience as a children's nurse if you are interested;
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16pLgLZvWyk

I hope this has helped you, and good luck on your future studies!

No problem! I'm happy I helped in some way,

We actually have quite an even proportion of female to male lecturers, I want to say 50:50 but I'm not too sure, but what I will say is there is both a mix of male and female lecturers including clinical skills staff.

My third year is going great, stressful and hectic, but I am enjoying every bit of it, had to adjust slightly due to the pandemic, but I'm nearly there!

Hello Nadia. My name is Ivlyn and I got interviewed for MSc Adult nursing on the 7th of April. I was told it would take about 10 working days or less to get a decision mail from the school but i haven’t gotten any yet. Do you think it’s okay to send a mail to the school asking for an update or do I give it some time. Thanks

Hi Ivlyn,
Yes I would definitely message admissions if the response time has been over 10 days, if you have a direct email I would use that or you could submit a form on this link below, and the admissions team should get back to you in due course.

All the best,

Hey Nadia!
For my City university offer they said ‘ We reserve the right to use academic and character references as part of the academic selection process please submit a satisfactory Character reference to the School of Health Sciences Admissions Team by 31 July 2021’ do I have to receive one from my teacher or do I have to write one when filling out the School of Health Sciences Admissions ?
