    Wanting to apply to do midwifery at coventry for sep 2010. Just wondering whether or not anyone is actually studying at the moment. Want to hear thoughts on what you think of the course, tutors, work placements, application process, also how many weeks of the year is spent at uni? because it's longer than a normal degree, i think

    I'm applying for Midwifery 2010 too I think experience is really hard to find. I actually got a leaflet about volountary work when i went to an open day. I emailed them about it and they said (as i am under 18) that the only thing i could do in a hospital environment is meeting and greeting at reception! I'm really put off finding any now and theres not many other areas i can get experience?!

    I'm starting Adult Nursing in sept 2010, I did apply for Midwifery last year (09 entry) but due to family commitments couldnt take up the place offered to me. its really hard getting hospital placements due to the nature of the whole job, as long as you have some sort of experience in a medical environment then thats good. i had some work experience at my local doctors surgery and i had the chance to speak to the community midwife etc and learnt loads. also experience working with people of the general public, preferably in a caring sense.. make sure all of this is put on your Personal Statement. There are interviews as well for all the medical style courses at cov though, but its group interviews so less daunting than one to one interviews in my opinion. any questions- feel free to ask
