    Default Bachelor of Midwifery UWS Parramatta????

    Hi everyone

    Just wondering if there is anyone out there in the same situation as me.

    I am 31 and hoping to get into the Bachelor of Midwifery course at UWS in Parramatta Sydney next year.

    I hear it is super hard to get into and I was wondering if there was anyone out there that has in fact got a place as a mature aged student??

    I called the UNI and was told that even if I received 100% in a STAT test it wouldn't make any difference to the chances of me being accepted into the course. She said it was incredibly competitive! She did say though that if I have 3 years or more of working full time under my belt than that was good (didn't matter what work she said). But that's all I have and I am just wondering if that would be enough??

    I also have 2 little girls and I know this course is full time and pretty much like working a 40hr week and I am wondering how I will go studying and doing the "mum" thing at the same time?!?!

    Anyone out there that can help???

    Hey mumofgracie, I too am looking at doing a bachelor of midwifery as a mature age student.
    I'm 26 this year, with a 5 and 7 year old, and have only worked permanent part-time for just over two years. Prior to that, I worked full-time hours, but as a casual. So basically, I have no chance.. haha.
    Do you think maybe doing a bachelor of nursing first, will better the chances of being accepted?

    Hi guys

    I've applied to UWS for this year also. Can't wait for Thursday night to see if I get an offer
    I'm also mature aged (31) with 3 boys 8,5,18mths.
    If you don't get in try doing any other degree for 1yr and applying for a transfer or nursing then a graduate diploma in mid?

    Good luck
