    Hi everyone :), I recently got an invite for an interview but it's a group interview, I've only ever done the new MMI structure so I'm not really sure on what to expect or how to prepare. Is it just the same sort of questions but in a group setting or is it more working with the other people...

    It's a very surreal feeling to be able to sit here and write this because it's been such a long time coming, however the wait is finally over and as of this Monday I shall be an actual student midwife!! Originally, I had wanted to apply for a midwifery degree at 17. After deliberating for some...

    Hello!! My names Paige and I fell pregnant at 15 (young I know) I had my little boy at age 16 in may 2014. I stayed at school until I was 39 weeks, almost full term!

    Hi everyone! So the application run for 2017 is the first time I've applied for midwifery, and my goodness does it feel like a shark fight. Back in 2014, I went through my first university application process into a course that my parents chose for me. It was something I never wanted to do, but...

    So the interview I wrote about? The one with the massive storm, the big power cut, NO TEA, the 6.30am journey to the bus in the pitch black because the street lights were out? Apparently, I showed sufficient resilience to be offered a place!! I genuinely did not expect to be in this position -...

    Since coming out of school as 16, I have never really known what job I wanted to do. I ended up doing full-time employment working as a customer service advisor; at a mobile phone company in Bury. I loved helping the customers out as much as I could; even if they had called up for a cheeky chat,...

    I absolutely can't believe it. I interviewed at Northumbria last Thurday and track updated today with an offer:clap:. I am in complete shock but I'm so excited too. I may have done a happy dance:punk: (and after four term pregnancies, my pelvic floor was quite alarmed by that, I can tell you)....

    I arrived nice and early and with some spare time at the University. I smiled and high fived myself mentally for not breaking into a huge sweat and went inside. A check at reception and the room quickly filled up with hopeful applicants. It started to become real.....!!! After a little tour...

    Tomorrow is interview day. Needless to say that I worked my way up that bad that I couldn't stop being sick yesterday. After a lengthy chat with my lovely colleagues I went for a for a run and kept myself busy other than reading up on Midwifery (sometimes you can overdo it). I think as this is...

    I received another interview invite! :woot: UWS invited me for an interview but didn't mention anything about testing... My understanding was that UWS usually invite people they want to interview for testing first and then those that pass are offered an interview. I'm not sure if they are just...
