    You're welcome

    I did UC prep in August 2012 and received an offer November/December ish for the 2013 intake.

    If you're sister is at UC now, you can access the journals through her account I tried to look on my computer for my questions and answers but have since deleted it, it seems

    @Christieb are you studying straight midwifery or the dual nursing/midwifery course? In Brisbane you can study through ACU (campus at Banyo, north side near the airport), UQ (mid is done at the St Lucia campus I believe, inner west Brisbane) and Griffith uni (not sure what campus sorry, but fairly sure Logan and Gold Coast and probably either Nathan or Mt Gravatt - all south side). I did my midwifery (postgrad) through ACU and I enjoyed the course quite a lot. I work with girls who went through both UQ and ACU as undergrads and they're all equally as competent as midwives. No one uni stands out over the others. We do have 1 or 2 who are questionable in their competency, but that's more the person than the uni (and they're on learning contracts/working in places where they're not unsafe/out of depth)

    Thanks so much for your reply! I am doing direct midwifery ( am loving the perspective) but am open to thinking about a dual. What would you or anyone recommend over the other?

    It depends what you're wanting to do when you graduate. Sometimes the nursing thing helps, sometimes it doesn't. The one major downside to the dual degree that I've heard from many of the girls I've worked with (as both students and colleagues) is that there are no graduate programs in brisbane as yet that incorporate the 2, so you're having to choose whether to apply for either nursing or midwifery grad programs when you finish. It makes it hard if you can't get into a mid program, but you get into a nursing one as it's a lot harder to get a job down the line as a midwife if you've not worked in the area. If your heart is set on just doing mid, stick to the b.mid.

    Thank you very much Meredithgrey

    That is very helpful! That is my exact view too in regards to medicalised/ surgical side. I would greatly appreciate asking you more via PM (but only joined bubhub today, and don't know how to do that )

    Hi Guys,

    I'm thinking of studying Midwifery Next year but i had a few questions that no website can really answer, so i thought here might be a great way to talk to some people with more knowledge than I have. I have no doubt that Midwifery will be an awesome profession for myself to do. I just wanted to know what shifts are like in perth,WA. I know it varies a lot, but working night sifts isn't ideal for my lifestyle, is it possible to work daytime hours as a midwife? Or are night shifts compulsory?

    I am hoping to study Bachelor of Midwifery, however the only uni's near me are Mackay and Townsville and both of them only offer the joint degree which I have no interest in. I have looked into other uni's that do offer it as a single degree but from what I have read none of them offer it externally and unfortunately moving to Brisbane etc is not an option for my family does anyone know if there ARE any uni's that offer it externally (I am in qld).

    TIA

    He + Me = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (May 2014)
    Embrace the chaos
