Im a 3rd year maths student and single mum to bean, 22wks. Only been a student parent for 4 wks but it's hard! Can't imagine it's going to get any easier either but i'm sure it's worth it.

What is everyone else studying? Oh, and where? I'm at uni in edinburgh.

Hello! I'm trying to finish my MA in medieval history in Cardiff. Have to hand my dissertation in in 6 weeks - ug. In fact, that's what I should be doing now. Damn MN But would much rather be blowing raspberries on ds.

Hello. Not sure I qualify for this thread, but I'm a distance learning student in hypnotherapy and psychoanalysis so no Uni to speak of but a student nevertheless. I have 2 stepchildren (16 and 15) and 3 children (10, 7 and 3 months). It's pretty hardgoing at times, but worth it I think.

Beansmum, I did my first degree (physics) at Edinburgh. Are you a resident of JCMB?

Obviously that should have said "Studying".

I'm doing an NVQ in Childcare & Education and my assessor keeps saying 'well your work is very good....there just isn't very much of it'

I've had the course extended by 9 months as I'm struggling
