Hi I would like some info on how to study and get into midwifery
Hello,

Midwifery is good career choice. What you should always do is check directly on the University website that advertised the Midwifery course and see their entry requirements...

5 GCSEs at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C), or equivalent, including English, maths and science
2 or 3 A levels, including a science, or a level 3 diploma or access to higher education in health, science or nursing
a degree in a relevant subject for postgraduate study

Older and returning to education : then this can vary for you.


Good website:
https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/exp...oles/midwifery
https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/exp...wifery/midwife
https://www.prospects.ac.uk/job-profiles/midwife
https://nationalcareers.service.gov....ofiles/midwife

University entry requirements vary:

Midwifing is a very highly competertive degree course due to limited numbers that each university take in each academic year.
You'll need English, maths & a science degree preferable biology.
Each university has there own entry requirements so therefore I would suggest you contact the chosen universities that you might attend for this degree to see what they require and then you can work towards it if need to.

I'm a NHS registered midwife ( in scotland) if I can help ok feel free to PM message me with any questions you want answered.

Would I be able to get in midwifery with level 3 health and social care, along side an A level I’m currently enjoying ( Drama ). I plan to do work experience soon somewhere around the field, and volunteering.

Just make sure that your chosen universities accept these as entry requirements as otherwise you should be fine as level 3 in H&SC is a start for you,

Can you become a nurse with health and Social Care Level 3.......

At Level 3 you will be able to follow either a care or health sciences pathway. ... A career in nursing and health & social care is extremely fulfilling, helping others. All courses include work experience and opportunities for you to practise in a realistic working environment within the college.

Thank you for the reply. Yes I’ve checked a couple of the universities I’m planning to go to and they do accept Level 3 extended diploma. I’m hoping to get work experience and lots of volunteering to help write about midwifery when writing my personal statement.

I know that midwifery is very competitive and I feel like I have no chance with Level 3 health and social care because I know many are applying with A level Biology or an AS grade.

You welcome ok.

Hopefully you will be successful when you apply.
You at least know which universities allows this for you so therefore you will know where to apply to

Good luck ok

Yes it very competertive because of limited numbers they take in each year due to the intense training side of it..

If you feel you won't be successful then think about doing adult nursing ok as then on qualifying you can apply for jobs on maternity wards as a adult nurse...

That no problems in trying to assist you OK.

Only thing you won't be able to do is births as a adult nurse working on maternity wards okay but there's options of MCA ( maternity care assistant) as look at what this says on this position . I have few adult nurses under me to assist if required but they do everything else but doing births ok.
Always look at alternatives as well.

Oh okay, would you say that other midwives roughly have the same working days as you or does it vary significantly? Thank you for replying 🙏🏽
