The RCM Student Midwives' Conference is the one of the largest gatherings of student midwives in the country. And thanks to our sponsors at the Royal College of Midwives, we had TWO tickets up for grabs - exclusively for SMNET members!

Attached to your application will be your personal statement, one of the most important documents you will ever write prior starting university. It’s this statement that will determine if you are or are not invited to testing/interview – providing you meet or are working towards the academic (and experience) requirements of your chosen universities. Your personal statement needs to be your perfect statement. Our team of trained, personal statement consultants can provide you with feedback, which will allow you to construct your strongest personal statement.

So after weeks of @mothgirl and I keeping quiet about something very exciting we've been working on, we can finally announce that SMNET will be hosting a question and answer session with some current working midwifery admissions tutors!!

This is a main site event that will take place on Thursday 4th September 2014 at 19.30. Here is your opportunity to ask all those burning questions that you have always wanted to know about the admissions process!

You can either be there on the night and ask your questions directly, or if you are not available, post your questions in this thread here and I will ask them for you.

We can't wait to see as many of you as possible on the night, full of questions!!

Equally, if you work for a university and would like to be added to the line up of fabulous guests, send me (@Akua ) a private message to discuss this further.
