I'm struggling to find a reputable access course that meets the entry requirements of the University I'd like to attend. Can anyone recommend any good access to midwifery courses? Ideally online ones.

Hello! I've taught on an Access to HE program for 10 years. I can't recommend any specific providers as I work in an F.E college and there is a conflict of interest, but what I would say is it doesn't have to be a bespoke Midwifery pathway you look for. On a Nursing and Midwifery Access program, the students do exactly the same units and assessments regardless of them doing Nursing or Midwifery. The Midwifery route is a little more difficult to progress on because you need a Level 2 in science whereas in Nursing you do not (just English and maths level 2). Be wary of this when applying, because some unscrupulous providers may enrol you even if you don't have the level 2 science.

Access programs in colleges have higher achievement and retention rates due to the face to face contact and support tutorials.

Make sure if you choose online, whichever provider you choose is registered with OFQUAL to deliver qualifications, and also that the course is validated by an awarding body such as Open Awards (who cover most of the North West of the UK)
