BMidWif (Midwifery) at The University of Manchester

“I’m thrilled with my results and I can’t believe I am going to study my perfect course! I will be going to The University of Manchester to study Midwifery (BMidWif) and follow my dream of becoming a Midwife.”

“Because of the support I received from Blackburn College, I achieved an A*, A*, A* and B in my A-Levels and am now progressing to study Midwifery at the University of Manchester.”

“The tutors at Blackburn College have been really great. In fact, they were the single most important factor in helping me achieve what I have achieved. I’m sure completing an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) – where I conducted independent research and produced a dissertation about the over-medicalisation of Midwifery also really helped my University application. I received a lot of support from the College’s high achievers’ coordinator David Jones and had weekly meetings with him to ensure the project was coming along successfully.”

“I’ve also been involved in plenty of other things that Blackburn College offers, like the Debating Matters programme – where you get to develop your debating skills against other young people.”

“I decided to study at Blackburn College because the atmosphere was so unlike other colleges – and in a good way. It seemed a lot more like University and I liked the fact that you were given the freedom to really be yourself.”
