Withdrawing from nursing and going Into midwifery

Hi I’m currently in my second year of an intergrated masters in nursing which is 4 years. I am currently thinking of withdrawing from my course ASAP, due to poor mental health. And i Would like to join the university of Chester midwifery degree for the 3 years. I have applied, but I have been advised I need funding sorted due to me being in my second year of the nursing degree. I rang student finance but the person I spoke to said that it should be fine but he didn’t really sound too sure. Can anyone advise whether this would be ok and that I would still be entitled to the 3 years funding for the midwifery degree even though I will have had 2 years funding for my current course? As long as I show evidence? Hope this makes sense :smile:

Hi there,

If you are withdrawing due to Mental Health problems would you have evidence from a GP confirming this? You may need to apply for CPR to ensure you'd qualify for full funding for Tuition Fees for the Midwifery course.

Thanks, Ross

Hi,

Yes I have evidence from my GP and councillors. So if I can present this would I be able to get the funding?

Thanks for confirming. Yes you would. We would need copies of the evidence and a cover letter giving a statement of events and the impact it had on your studies. You can upload it online once you make your new application.

Thanks, Ross

Is CPR necessary even though midwifery is an exception course?

Hi Jess, if you're studying a midwifery course then these typically are exempt from previous study rules as long as you're not registered in the field you're looking to study. The CPR evidence would only be needed if the course wasn't an exception course. Thanks, Jason
