How do I get into a midwifery course?

Okay so im at a sixth form college at the moment. Im studying, media studies, double english, sociology and product design at a level. Im really struggling in two of those courses and dont think I will get above a c in certain courses. I really really really want to be a midwife and have done so for many many years! So that means I have to go to university. I got five gcses at c grade and above aswell. Will I be able to enter a university such as uwe? I really want to do this! Pleasee help, im starting to worry that something I have wanted to do all my life, I wont be able to do! Thanks x

the nhs says:

‘Counselling, listening and general communication skills are obviously essential. Many mothers especially new ones will need advice and support. Aside from the practical caring skills you also have to be aware of the social and cultural context in which childbirth takes place.’

‘There are no national minimum entry requirements as each higher education institution (HEI) sets its own criteria. However, these are generally around 5 GCSEs plus 2 A-levels or equivalent for a degree programme. All applicants must be able to demonstrate evidence of literacy, numeracy and good character.’

Applications for full-time midwifery degree programmes should be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
