I’m quite excited right now. Lately I have been contemplating a career switch from accounting to midwifery. I know, polar opposites, but that’s me.
Remember this entry about saving and making life decisions? I think I’ve just added another whole level to it, Inception styles. Studying in England.
I complained this morning of being frustrated and currently stuck as I really want to travel but am saving. I can’t switch my career because that would kill my savings. Then a bright bunny suggested I study overseas. Of course I went back to her with a list of excuses. But really, after researching I found the course is only three years in England, here it’s four – so as she said, I’ve already saved a year on tuition and living expenses. Also, I have my British passport – I wont be an international student!!
So this morning I have emailed Nottingham, Oxford, Leeds, Bristol and Brighton Universities, all offering a BSc(Hons) in Midwifery. I have my fingers crossed for Oxford, imagine saying you have a degree from Oxford?! Awesome. Their courses for 2012 all start in September, so that gives me time to save, enjoy a bit of travel and then start the course next September.
Those were my top four picks for universities, if anyone has any information on those five, or additional universities in England, or even Scotland and Wales – please let me know! The more information the better!
I could be a midwife before my 31st birthday!
