Birthwise warmly welcomes international students in its programs. All applicants, including international applicants, must be fluent in English.

Canadian Applicants

Because of our close proximity to Canada, Birthwise has enrolled many Canadian students in our program. If you are Canadian and wish to enroll in our program, we encourage you to visit the Canadian Midwives Association website for detailed information on the legal and political status of direct-entry midwifery in your province. Midwifery is a rapidly growing profession in Canada. Legislation and models of midwifery care are diverse across the country.

Birthwise is approved by the Ontario Student Assistance Program. Applicants from Ontario are eligible to receive financial aid through the Ontario Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities.


International Applicants

International applicants can seek counseling throughout the admissions process from our Student Exchange and Visitor Information Advisor, Elizabeth McKinnon. She’s here to help you navigate the visa process and succeed in our programs.
