Personal Interviews

  • About 75 applicants will be invited for personal interviews that are held in April.
  • Interviews are conducted in-person only at Ryerson. No other arrangements can be accommodated.
  • The format is organized as a series of short interviews held on one day, through which applicants are assessed.
  • Applicants are evaluated on a number of areas during the interview stage including:
    • Motivation to become a midwife
    • Qualities important in a midwife (empathy, responsibility, flexibility, open-mindedness, etc.)
    • Awareness of the reality and demands of being a midwifery student and a midwife in Ontario.
    • Key skillsets – strong communications skills, critical thinking, problem solving.

Approved Students 

  • After the interview stage is completed, offers of admissions will be made to approximately 30 successful candidates in early May. Candidates are notified through their Choose>Ryerson account, in addition to a hard copy acceptance sent by surface mail.
  • A select number of applicants who were not granted admission may be placed on a waiting list.
  • All waiting lists are automatically dissolved at the beginning of the school year (end of the first week of classes). So, if you have not heard from us by then, and are still interested in the MEP at Ryerson, please reapply for admission for the following year.
