    Hi chan87,

    I think every uni is different. I was referring specifically to uc (university of Canberra). Being at the open day myself, I understand that for those mature aged students (like myself and others) a high Atar isn't the ONLY option. Also, nursing and midwifery are completely different courses and careers.

    Good luck with your future midwifery study.

    Hey,

    The ATAR for midwifery is very high it's true. I know in NSW the universities offering midwifery have a very high ATAR level that they would like students to meet. UC is a little different...they do tend to look at you past and the supplementary application form you submit. Personally i'd recommend doing a preparation program on top especially if your previous ATAR isn't the score they are looking for....

    Annabelley i just saw your other post!

    I'm in Belconnen. I don't want to worry you because i wrote to Dale too and she said referencing is a good idea because it's shows your research but its NOT essential! (To be honest, upon reading your answers i'm pretty sure they can tell if you have been researching or not!) Did you do a lot of reading? It's sometimes difficult to navigate those websites they suggested and i'm finding it difficult to find free 'journals'.

    Did you girls find it difficult to separate what would be the major issues of 'midwives' and what would be the major issues for 'child bearing women'?
    I can't help but think, what would be considered an issue for the women is also an issue for the midwife and vice versa?

    Hi Rhiannon,

    I did heaps of reading midwifery text books, and you- tubing and goggling ...LOL

    the major issues of 'midwives' and what would be the major issues for 'child bearing women'?

    yes, I found the above somewhat difficult. But I broke it down for myself, and did a lot of reading from the midwifery text books ( which I borrowed from a friend). Issues for the women- I touched on depression and lack of local support so in this example, perhaps it would not concern the midwife the same way. I think I just ranted on....really.

    Hi again,

    I can't tell you how reassuring it is to talk to someone else who is doing the same thing as me! I talked about mental health too. For the issues in midwifery it's pretty hard to compare Australia to some other parts of the world which have some serious midwifery issues...i just tried to mention them briefly and then talk about indigenous maternity differences etc.

    One of the most difficult questions for me has actually been the one about myself haha. I find it difficult...especially being young with no children!

    I really hope we all get accepted! At least we can anticipate together

    Hi Rhiannon and Annabelley

    i have been working on my application today - I am finding it difficult to answer question 1 too but think I have been overthinking it so am going to revisit it again tomorrow with fresh eyes.

    I've got a few references to show my reading but am trying to keep a strong sense of me in there too.

    so hard to get the balance right in half a page!

    I'm in belconnen too

    Hey Andrea,

    I always have to take breaks of i start questioning everything i have written! The questions are so broad that half a page is difficult. I think question one was the easiest one for me actually. I think every topic we write about is relevant, i just wonder whether or not they think its 'major'.

    Referencing is tricky because i kind of put all the stuff i'd read together and summarised it in my own words...not sure how to approach it but i'll do a bibliography with sources.

    Just reading some of this thread and realised I had contributed back before I started my Bach of Mid.

    I want to wish you all good luck, it is a challenging and emotional course. I graduate next year and I feel like I might possibly get a glimpse of my life back lol.

    Such an amazing career and course. When you get to study something this amazing you feel grateful for every minute and at times it is hard to keep reminding yourself of that.

    Again, good luck to everyone of you and hope you get into the course. Maybe I will work alongside you one day and not even realise it :-D

    Oh that's promising to hear!
    Luckily my final year is only part time because I took 4 years instead of 3 to complete.
    Now it's just chasing numbers. 4 more women out of 20 to sign and follow and then all the births etc.

    I am hoping to get a part time position after a grad year. Need to regain some work/life balance.
