I live in Adelaide , Sa .

Any help would be appreciated , thanks everyone

Hi There Mystik

Here is the Link for Flinders Uni on there Midwifery course http://www.flinders.edu.au/courses/ugrad/bachelor/midwifery2.htm

From that link, you will be able to see what you need to do to enrol into this course, and also what is required of you from this course. If you want to check out other uni's and other programes, then just go to www.google.com.au and type in the uni's name and look up their course listings and search for midwifery.

Hope this gives you a insite into midwifery and also helps you in deciding if this is a career path for you to take, best of luck with your studies and also your future as a midwife

Regards,

Aaron

UNISA is also a good option for you too.

I would really love to be a midwife as well but after being out of school for over 10 years and being a stay home Mum with 2 kids I decided to start with another course first. So I am studying Div 2 nursing part time. (not that I am suggesting this mind you, just letting you know what worked for me).

Anyway I have decided that midwifery is really what I want to do and when I have completed my Div 2 I will go on and apply to bachelor of Mid and also bachelor of nursing and work towards that goal. I dont care how long it takes, as long as I get there.

Anyway there are a few options for you to look at so I suggest the same as Aaron and checking out all the uni's and seeing what they have to offer you.

I think it's great you know what you want to do. I say go for it and I wish you all the best with your research and applications and, of course, your studies !!!
