By the time you complete your studies at Edge Hill, you will have become a very knowledgeable, questioning and focused practitioner.

“Before starting my course I was a little apprehensive about becoming a mature student, but it just hasn’t been a problem at all!

Everyone on the Midwifery course has had their own personal circumstances and throughout our studies we have been treated as individuals by the tutors and support staff. No assumptions are made that you automatically know something, or are able to do something, just because you are a bit older than some of the others.

You certainly need to be determined and organised in order to succeed, but the tutors understand and are really supportive. They help you to plan your time to ensure you maintain a healthy work-life balance and don’t get overwhelmed.

I have really liked the combination of practice and theory that the course involves, as well as the varied and imaginative use of assessment tools. We get assessed in practice, which accounts for half of our mark, while the other half comes from a range of assessments, such as essays, exams and presentations which makes for an interesting learning experience.

With the support of my tutor, I also recently won a Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and Wellbeing of Women bursary to part-fund my third year elective to the USA, which I am really excited about.

By the time you complete your studies at Edge Hill, you will have become a very knowledgeable, questioning and focused practitioner. You will also have spent time working in three different local hospital trusts too, which ensures you have a clear idea of where you would like to work in the future.”
