    I know nurses have a lot of work at uni...aparantly not even enough time to socialise....sucky! I was just wondering if this was the same for midwifes? Do both courses pretty much have the same workload?

    meh yeah it is the same workload, as for socialising..no..there is less time than the average student, but its so worth it, and with good time managment you can enjoy yourself

    for example

    I've been in uni 20hours this week, have got 2 assignments and 3 exams in a months time, BUT have still managed to go to a 21st birthday party, have a games night with friends (monopology, twister with red wine and a dvd after lol) and have lunch with friends inbetween lectures

    well im not going to lie, yes it is ******* hard, and its no walk in the park, and you've got to be dedicated, organised and on the ball to pass and get through the next 3 years, and there is a high drop out rate because of this, have a look at my blog in my signature, will give you an idea how what is faced in the first year
