    I'm not in the situation you described, OP, but i have studied with SAHMs and single mums before, and i noticed how hard completing course work was for them. Group assignments, organising time to see lecturers, exams scheduled when they couldn't get care, etc. Many places are very inflexible for mothers, and teachers had no interest in helping out- my friend's little girl was in hospital for a week, and she still couldn't get an extension for an assignment as she was told her DH could have watched her.

    Im a kiwi so cant get HECS.I hated school so studying kinda scares me.Besides I dont have any desire to study.I work in hospo,and I think I always will,and its experience that gets you places,not qualifications.

    Also a Kiwi and need to pay fee up front.

    My kids are looking like uni is the way they will be going so for me, it is more important to have the money ready to pay their fees than it is for me to study and go to work when in reality, I have no need any more. We finally have a good income and DH works away so being a sahm is logical for me. The kids won't have access to HECS etc either, so we have some pretty huge bills coming our way, especially seeing as our eldest DD has her heart set on medical school.
