- Contract with an approved, participating hospital as a student midwife for the duration of the courseApplication processRegistered nurses wishing to undertake this course to become registered midwives must have employment as a midwifery student in one of CSU's partnering maternity services. Application processes differ depending on where you wish to undertake your midwifery practice placement. If you wish to be employed as a midwifery student in a NSW public hospital, you must apply via the NSW Health website in the year prior to which you wish to enrol. The application process is through MidStART and information is available online. The MidStART information book is available online each year. Follow the instructions to select both the maternity service (public hospital) where you wish to undertake your midwifery practice, and indicate that you wish to study through CSU.

However, you are required to submit your application for enrolment to CSU online at the same time that you apply through MidStART (or through the hospital, if you are applying interstate or at a private hospital). CSU will keep your application on hold until you notify the university that your MidStART or hospital application has been successful. You need to do this prior to 1 November for intake in Session 1, and prior to 1 May for intake in Session 2.
