Discover Midwifery: What is it like to be a Midwifery Student?
This experience is strongly focused on how to prepare for, and studying on a midwifery course. There will be opportunities for networking, finding good resources and discussing the challenges of emotional work, round the clock shifts and professional practice.
Timetables, student testimonials, textbooks and detailed course information will be available throughout the day for participants to read.
The course will be delivered by midwifery lecturers and current student midwives.
This is a ‘not for credit’ course, so there is no assessment. At the end of the day participants will have increased understanding about preparing for midwifery studies, the selection process and what to expect as a student midwife.
