I underestimated just how difficult it would be to get into midwifery.
As a mature student completing an access to higher education course I was top in my class gaining mainly distinction grades. I wrote what I thought was a good personal statement and applied to 5 universities.

I didn't get any interviews, let alone offers!

I had presumed that my life experience and grades would be enough to get me in and I was wrong. After reading this book I realised I had made many mistakes that cost me my place at uni this year. I will be reapplying but wish this book had been available when I was applying the first time, I would probably already be a student midwife.

Wish something like this had been around when I applied to do my training. Takes you through the process step by step as it can be a bit of a headache! Ellie's down-to-earth approach is comical and easy reading.

Ellis I would just like to say a huge thank you for taking the time and sharing your knowledge in what can only be described as a book that doesn't disappoint and is a delight to read. I feel like my rationale for choice and all the ideas that were whirring round my head have become so much clearer now. Thanks again

This book was like my holy grail the ought he whole application. It helped with structuring my personal statement, revising for maths entry tests, and getting my notes together for my interview. I can happily say I have an offer my first year applying to my first choice university. I can honestly say is don't think this would have been the case without this book. BUY IT!!

Absolutely fantastic. I have applied 6 times to various midwifery courses across the UK however had no luck. I began studying as a nurse in a bid to get experience for my future career as a midwife. I'm currently planning on applying again in September for 2016 intake at Manchester so I'm using this book to guide me to gathering relevant experience and how to get it across effectively- fingers crossed!

This book helped me a great deal when it came to writing my personal statement for UCAS. The knowledge Ellie imparts is invaluable and prevented me making untold number of mistakes!!

I cant say yet whether or not it has helped get a place on a degree course, but it certainly wont have done me any harm!!

Thanks Ellie :-)

Ellie Durants book is nothing short of perfect! It contains the most valuable advice & guidance to help you get a place at university! Everything from writing your personal statement, to the pre entry tests, to the interviews!! I have no doubt that I would not be going to university this year without the help of this book! Thank you!

I am just applying to uni and this book is really helpful. It has good practice questions and gives thorough advice on everything you need to know from what to wear to what to say. It also has practice maths and English questions which are helpful. This book even helped me get on to my access course so definitely worth a read.

This book is amazing. I am so glad I found it in time for my interview, if like me you have any doubts, this book will undoubtedly explain everything and you soon realise you weren't the only one that was thinking the same question that you thought was too daft to ask. A must have read for anyone thinking of applying :-)

Love this book! It's my first year applying and as others have mentioned it is extremely competitive to get into. Elle gives you so much advice on personal statements to preparing for an interview. If I am fortunate to get an interview I really feel this book has given me the confidence to do well x
